The CSS WG has published a Candidate Recommendation and invites
implementations of the CSS Display Module Level 3:


CSS Display describes how the CSS formatting box tree is generated
from the document element tree and defines properties that control
the types of boxes thus generated.

New features since Level 2 include:
   * new two-keyword syntaxes for various display types
   * inline list-items
   * run-ins
   * 'display: contents' to replace an element with its contents

The draft also features
   * A normative description of the CSS box generation model
   * Definitions for blockification and inlinification
   * A glossary of key box model terms (largely extracted from CSS2.1)

Significant changes since earlier drafts are listed at:
Disposition of comments:

Please review the draft, and send any comments to the www-style list,

message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at
