[CSSWG][selectors-4] Updated WD of Selectors Level 4

# fantasai (2 days ago)

The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of Selectors Level 4

 https://www.w3.org/TR/selectors-4/

Selectors is a pattern-matching syntax for identifying sets of elements in a document, and is used e.g. for applying CSS declarations to elements in a document tree.

This publication brings the /TR draft up-to-date with all of the WG resolutions since 2013. Significant changes are summarized at: www.w3.org/TR/2018/WD-selectors-4-20180201/#changes

This specification is now in the Refining stage: we don't expect any large changes prior to CR, but will be continuing to address issues. Most features are well-scoped, with significant open issues described in the draft to solicit directed feedback.

One major focus of the next round of edits will be to update and improve cross-references between Selectors and other Web standards (in coordination with the editors of the DOM and HTML standards at WHATWG). If any of you know of other specifications with incoming references to Selectors, please let us know so that we can accommodate them, too!

In the meantime, please review the draft. You can send any comments to the www-style list <www-style at w3.org>, prefixed with [selectors-4] (as I did on

this message) or (preferably) file them in the CSSWG GitHub repository at w3c/csswg-drafts/issues We're hoping to address the remaining issues and issue a CR in the upcoming months (but likely not before April).

Follow-ups to www-style.

For the CSS WG, ~fantasai
