Where is CSS headed?
Currently no browser supports CSS1 entirely, although a couple browsers come close. The additions and changes in CSS2 have barely been touched by the browser-makers. Yet still, the folks at the W3C and its mailing lists are thinking about the future.

In December 1998 a W3C note was published (see above) containing a large laundry-list of items that have been suggested for inclusion in CSS3. It is likely that many of these features will be cut (in fact, the Note includes a "voting" utility to help build feedback on public wishes for these features.)

It may be a bit premature to be thinking about a third CSS standard when the browser makers can't even complete the first one, let alone scratch the surface of the second. It will be interesting to see how CSS support develops, and whether a new standard is even necessary at this stage of the Web's development.
