Oh yeah!

One forgets if those specs if they hang around so long (WD1 May 01, Cand.Rec. May 03).

Is anything expected from this spec? An MS employee is listed as author, but MS doesn't seem to be very interested in standards.

Sorry, for the rant. But I have been watching CSS for some time, but really get bored with the slow progress. I am missing updates for expected test sets, let alone final recs. It's about time for Color, Text and Ruby. And Selectors is in test for more than two years...
