Subject: Fwd: [CSSWG][css-text-3] CR of CSS Text L3


Hot off the presses, a proposed CR for CSS Text L3!

"The remaining typesetting features--focused on text transformation, line breaking, justification, spacing, and alignment--remain as âCSS Text Level 3â.

Something to think about over the holiday season!

Hope everyone is safe and enjoying the season!

I am very pleased to announce that the CSS WG has published a Candidate Recommendation of the CSS Text Module Level 3:

This module has been a core part of the decades-long collaboration between the CSS Working Group and the Internationalization Working Group to bring internationalized typesetting capabilities to CSS and the Web platform.

Note: The feature set in early drafts of âCSS3 Textâ was been split into three parts, with âCSS Writing Modes Level 3â and âCSS Text Decoration Level 3â having already progressed to CR (and beyond). The remaining typesetting features--focused on text transformation, line breaking, justification, spacing, and alignment--remain as âCSS Text Level 3â.

âCSS3 Textâ:

This specification would not have been possible without the contributions of many experts across the W3C, Unicode, IDPF, and Japanese standards communities across the past two decades. As the longest continuing editor, I personally would like to thank my current and former co-editors their hard work, and also our relentless i18nWG reviewers for their knowledge and feedback. We are appreciative also of Microsoft, Netscape, Mozilla, Opera Software, Antenna House, Bloomberg, EAST Japan, Adobe, Hewlett-Packard, and Google for their support of our work in the CSSWG--and no less everyone who contributed to the outstanding W3C Internationalization programme which has continuously guided and informed our work.

As usual, changes since the previous Working Draft are documented in the Changes section:
There's also a Disposition of Comments covering all feedback received since the 2013 Last Call Working Draft:

Please send any comments to the CSSWG mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-text-3] (as I did on this message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at

At this point CSS Text Level 3 is feature-frozen; further work in this area will continue in CSS Text Level 4. https://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-4/

On behalf of the CSSWG,
