what is it
A Python package to parse and build CSS Cascading Style Sheets.
main changes since 0.9.4b1
for full details for 0.9.5a1 see the relevant CHANGELOG:
A few (minor) non-backwards compatible changes have been made, please
for migration help.
+ **API CHANGE**: ``Property.name`` is now the same as
``Property.normalname`` which is DEPRECATED now. To access the literal
name (the value which was available in ``name`` until now) use
``Property.literalname``. For most cases where a property name is used
the new behaviour makes more sense, therefor the change.
**Do not use ``normalname`` anymore, it will probably be
removed for release 1.0.**
+ **API CHANGE**: iterating over ``css.CSSStyleDelcaration`` yields
now *effective* properties only and not *all* properties set in the
declaration. E.g. from ``color: red; c\olor: green`` only one Property
is returned which has the value ``green``. To retrieve *all* properties
use ``CSSStyleDeclaration.getProperties(all=True)``. Reason for this
change is that for most cases the new default makes more sense.
- **FEATURE**: ``css.CSSStyleDelcaration`` supports ``in`` now.
Expected is a Property or a name of a property which is checked if
already in the style declaration
- **FEATURE**: ``css.Selector`` has a **readonly** property
``specificity`` now which is calculated as described at
- **FEATURE**: Added ``css.CSSStyleDeclaration.getProperty(name,
normalize=True)`` which returns the effective Property object for ``name``.
- FEATURE: Implemented
http://csswg.inkedblade.net/spec/css2.1#issue-23, URI may be
``URL(...)`` or ``u\r\6c(...)`` now
+ **BUGFIX**: Priority of Properties is acknowledged by all methods
of ``css.CSSStylesDeclaration`` now.
