Cascading Style Sheets[edit]

I was pleasantly surprised to find this much information on CSS here, and thought it looked like a featured article. grendel|khan 18:41, 2005 Feb 9 (UTC)

  • Object. Not ready for featured status. Has no lead section, no images (yes I think these are possibly for this article), and about a quarter of the article consists of external links, many of which are duplicate or irrelevant. The article should also be clear on whether it is an article about CSS or an article for people who want to use it. There are various more smaller problems which I will not dicuss here now; I suggest to move this article Wikipedia:Peer Review before coming back here. Jeronimo 19:09, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Refer to Peer Review. In addition to Jeronimo's points: I think the article should include more info on the content of the CSS(2) specifications. Also, keywords are mentioned but not explained ('aural', 'paged'). Content is duplicated (e.g. the part about the nature of CSS2.1 is found in both the 'Difficulty with adoption' and 'Recommendations' sections). The distinction (if any) between 'recommendation' and 'specification' is not clear. The important issue of accessibility is touched upon only in tutorial style. mark 00:26, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • agree with everything said so far. Object its not yet ready for FA status. I would also like to point out theres nothing on the CSS 3.0 standard proposal and what its going to break/fix.  ALKIVARRadioactive.svg 01:27, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Refer to peer review - lead section too short. Not enough about incompatiblities (yes, I realise there are external links, but this should be noted in the article text itself) we have an article Internet Explorer box model bug for instance, User:WapCaplet noted in the talk page that "stylesheets were originally envisioned by Tim Berners-Lee in about 1994, and how they progressed over time to become a standard" and that there should be "some mention of the difficulties in getting the standards widely accepted and used in practice, and particularly in getting browsers to implement them". No information about the differences between CSS1, CSS2 and CSS3. More information about sites like CSS ZenGarden might be nice also. - Ta bu shi da yu 04:30, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
