Members of the W3C CSS Working Group have put forward CSS Mobile Profile 1.0 as a W3C Candidate Recommendation. Part of the W3C Style Activity, this document "defines a subset of the Cascading Style Sheets Level 2 specification tailored to the needs and constraints of mobile devices. CSS2 is a style sheet language that allows authors and users to attach style (e.g., fonts, spacing, and aural cues) to structured documents (e.g., HTML documents and XML applications). By separating the presentation style of documents from the content of documents, CSS2 simplifies Web authoring and site maintenance. CSS2 thus specifies how developers can author style sheets for presenting documents across multiple devices and media types. The CSS Mobile Profile specifies a conformance profile for mobile devices, identifying a minimum set of properties, values, selectors, and cascading rules; the resulting CSS Mobile Profile is very similar to CSS1. The new CR document is a revision of the Working Draft dated January 29, 2001; it incorporates suggestions received during last call review, comments, and further deliberations of the W3C CSS Working Group." The duration of the Candidate Recommendation phase will be at least six months, viz., October 2001 through April 2002.
