CSS Secrets

Web standards
How are they decided on?
The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium): a forum for interested parties to get together and make standards in W3C Working Groups
the W3C oversees the process
the CSS WG (Working Group) write the CSS specifications
CSS WG: 98 members (86 from W3C member companies, 7 invited experts, 5 W3C staff members)
All the communications of the CSS WG is open to the public, inviting participation (links are in the book / google it)
The actual authors of the specifications are the Spec Editors. Each specification goes through multiple stages: several draft stages -> proposal -> recommendation
