News.com does CSS; CSS 2.1, and Paged Media module drafts

News.com has followed Wired News’s lead and switched to a CSS-based layout. Although the mark-up doesn’t validate, it does seem to be semantically organized. A few people, however, have reported the design chokes when displayed in IE 5.x on the Macintosh and Windows.

CSS 2.1 may be two steps away from being official. The W3C issued what it’s calling the “last call” working draft. In other words, this is the version expected to become the Candidate Recommendation and, in turn, the CSS 2.1 Recommendation. If you still don’t like something about it, speak now. (View the changes from the previous draft and from CSS2 itself)

Also released, a new draft from the Paged Media module of CSS3.
