W3C Announces New Features for CSS3

By Nikolaj Borg

After years of development, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has announced some of the exciting new features in Cascading Style Sheets, CSS3.

"We've been focusing a lot on the accessibility of Style Sheets," Darren Stennet, chief developer at W3C explained. "CSS has been around for many years and is supported by nearly every single browser. So why don't people use them yet? Judging from most pages out there, we figured that CSS has simply been too complicated for the average user."

To solve this, W3C introduces a new class: "Template." This class allows web designers to define the entire layout of their site, using only a single line of CSS.

"We expect templates to become a hit," Darren Stennet exclaimed. "With only a single line of code (such as "template{aol; nauseating}"), designers can make the same mind-numbingly ugly sites, which it used to take them hours to make. Heck, they'll probably get even uglier."

Darren Stennet promised that the dreaded Internet Explorer padding bug has been addressed. "We've given up on convincing Microsoft that padding goes on the outside. Some of us even suggested that we should let them have their way, just to solve this. Instead, we agreed on a solution that is bound to make everyone happy: CSS will support a new type of padding: padding_outside_of_the_friggin_element. Let's see them mess that one up.”

Browser developers welcomed the new features. Mozilla developers announced, "It's already implemented in the latest Beta - we'll have it out by next week. IE sucks."

The word from Opera is, "Bertil is milking the goats right now. When he is done, he will do the code. Then we will have some nice goat cheese. Mmmmmmm."

Microsoft expects to have it ready "somewhere around IE8.”
