W3C Member Proposes "Fix" For CSS Prefix Problem

bricriu Re:CSS is annoying (144 comments)

The aligning problems you cite are exactly the sorts of new features that are subject to the prefix problem -- see the flexbox spec (at http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-flexbox/)... and then see the 2009 flexbox spec (at http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-css3-flexbox-20090723). Most browsers (minus the IEs) support the old version. A few Chrome versions -- NOT -webkit-*, just Chrome -- support the new syntax (see http://caniuse.com/flexbox).

So, to sum up: we have this new standard you desire, but the problem addressed by the FA is directly to blame for the lack of adoption.

The Abdication of the HTML Standard

bricriu Re:CSS is horrible for table layouts (298 comments)

If you want to display data in a table, use table tags. That's fine. That's what they're there for. They're NOT there for general block-level content layout.
