    News: A Decade Later, W3C Finalizes CSS 2.1

    TUESDAY, JUNE 7, 2011 | cio Bookmark and Share

     

    The Web's Cascading Style Sheets now can be rendered consistently across a large number of devices. The World Wide Web Consortium has updated its widely used specifications for formatting the look and feel of Web pages, a standard known as CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). After almost a decade of work, the W3C's CSS Working Group has published CSS version 2.1 as an official specification. CSS 2.1 first became a W3C Candidate Recommendation in 2004.

     Much of the most recent work on CSS 2.1 has been to ensure it is a stabile platform. The standard has a large number of formatting features. They all had to be tested to ensure they work correctly together in various combinations. The CSS Test Suite, which can be used by browser makers to ensure their applications render CSS pages correctly, now has more than 9,000 tests.
     
    As a result of this finalization, Web page and Web application developers can have a lot more confidence in writing features once that can  work in a lot of different devices. Browsers already support many of the CSS 2.1 specifications, though browsers makers may have to do a bit of tweaking to fully support the final specification. 
     

    W3C working groups are also developing CSS 3, though much of this work builds on CSS 2.1. Instead of releasing CSS 3.0 as a monolithic standard, the working group will issue individual modules that will add onto version 2.1. Following this pattern, the W3C has also just published CSS Color Module Level 3, which provides easier ways to specify colors and transparency for text, borders and backgrounds.
