W3C Finalizes CSS 2.1 Standard

I got a release this afternoon stating that the CSS 2.1 standard had been finalized.

Yes, I did a double-take too.

CSS 2.1 people!

Here we are in 2011, the era of HTML5 and CSS 3 and the W3C is out with a release about CSS 2.1.

"People have asked us 'Why is CSS 2.1 taking so long?'", said Daniel Glazman, CSS Working Group Co-chair in a statement. "CSS 2.1 is a really large collection of formatting features, and we had to not only carefully review and specify all the potential interactions between them, but also learn from existing implementations and of course tests. Time ensured quality and interoperability."
Nonsense.

It took so long because standards follow practice and not the other way around. Every web browser has been supporting its own version of CSS 2.x for the last 5 or more years and now that vendor attention has shifted to HTML5 and CSS 3 the W3C is tabulating the final scorecard for CSS 2.1.

Google Says Kazakhstan Is Trying to ‘Create Borders on the Web’ With Rules

Google Inc. (GOOG) said Kazakhstan is trying to “create borders on the Web” by imposing rules on Internet search, a move that may degrade the quality of Web surfing in the Central Asian nation.
Google is redirecting users away from the customized search engine in Kazakhstan after the country’s government required that all queries go through local servers, Mountain View, California-based Google said yesterday in a blog post. Google says it routes searchers to servers around the world to answer requests the fastest way possible.
“If we were to operate Google.kz only via servers located inside Kazakhstan, we would be helping to create a fractured Internet,” Bill Coughran, senior vice president of research and systems infrastructure, wrote in the blog post.
Kazakhstan users will instead be steered toward Google.com, which will mean search results won’t be customized for the country, Google said.
Google has chafed at other countries’ restrictions too. Last year, the company started directing users in China to its Hong Kong service rather than subject itself to government censorship rules.
“We find ourselves in a difficult situation: creating borders on the Web raises important questions for us not only about network efficiency but also about user privacy and free expression,” Coughran said in the post about Kazakhstan.
Google fell $2.03 to $519.03 yesterday in Nasdaq Stock Market trading. The shares had fallen 13 percent this year before today.
