what is it
A Python package to parse and build CSS Cascading Style Sheets. (Not a
- **API CHANGE**: ``cssutils.parseURL`` has been renamed to
``parseUrl`` for consistency with ``getUrls`` or ``replaceUrls``.
Parameter ``href`` (before called ``url``) is the first and mandatory
+ **BUGFIX**: Fix the streamreader in the codec: Honor the encoding
if one is passed to the constructor instead of trying to detect it from
+ **BUGFIX**: Reading referenced styleSheet in CSSImportRule did
not succeed as no encoding information is passed along. Encoding of
referenced sheets is always retrieved via HTTP or from imported sheet
itself. Fixed lots of unchecked cases and simplified exception handling
when reading a referenced sheet.
+ BUGFIX: Setting ``atkeyword`` of @rules checks if it is a valid
keyword for the specific rule. E.g. an @import rule accepts ``@im\port``
but not ``@namespace``.
+ BUGFIX: Fixed setting ``name`` of CSSImportRule. Setting ``name``
other than with a string results in xml.dom.SyntaxErr raised now
+ BUGFIX: ``CSSStyleSheet.type`` with a fixed value of "text/css"
and other readonly properties are really readonly now
CSSValue, CSSValueList, and CSSPrimitiveValue and the relevant
methods/properties Property.cssValue and
CSSStyleDeclaration.getPropertyCSSValue are more or less DEPRECATED and
will probably be replaced with interfaces defined in CSSOM. For now use
the properties and methods that handle values as simple strings, e.g.
``Property.value``. As the aforementioned classes are not hardly that
useful anyway this should not be a big problem but please beware if you
use or have used them.
If you think this a bad idea please let me know!
cssutils is published under the LGPL version 2.1 or later, see
The included `encutils <http://cthedot.de/encutils/>`__ has been updated

<http://cthedot.de/restserver/>`__ has been updates to version 2.1 which
is in the public domain now (no Creative Commons license anymore). So
only a single license (the LGPL) is used throughout cssutils now. If you
have other licensing needs please let me know.

cssutils needs Python 2.4 or higher (tested with Python 2.5.2 on Vista only)
