Working for a better CSS future
Careful! This post is looking a little old and could be inaccurate in many, many ways
Today the following post arrived in my RSS Inbox:
Shaun Inman is a leading voice on the web, so when he talks about proposing new features to the CSS Working Group a lot of people will listen. His idea about the creation of CSS Qualified Selectors are well thought-out and his examples more than justify the proposals. Anything that reduces the number of unique ID’s and classes in HTML code can only help with building and maintaining websites.
It’s true that it will be a long time till we can take advantage of this, if the proposals are accepted. But in my view the idea would be a great addition to the CSS specification.
