W3C Standards

What's the W3C's baseline standards?? I know the CSS3's baseline is 2.1 but not sure about HTNL5 and CSS3's add-ons.

Hi Jonny,

Could you clarify what you mean by w3c's baseline standards?

baseline: The line on which the lowest terminals of most commonly used glyphs, excepting those with descenders, rest. The line as a whole is said to rest here. https://www.w3.org/wiki/The_web_standards_curriculum_glossary#baseline

CSS3 Add-ons: Add-ons add new functionality to Gecko -based applications such as Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Thunderbird https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=CSS3%27s+add-ons&topic=addons&topic=css

Jason, sometimes I can't explain things clearly, what are the minimum specifications - that's what I mean? Does this clarify things?

Ellie answered the question

Hi Jonny,

I'm sorry but I still don't get it. I don't think I've heard of baseline used before regarding the specifications. css3 and css2.1 are just different levels of css.

Is your question about how the standards process works? Please try to clarify what you mean by baseline or try to say it in a different way.

Do Ellie's answers answer your question?
