CSS Variablen


Am Freitag noch drüber philosophiert, und da sind sie schon: CSS Variablen.

Since the release of CSS Level 2 Recommendation ten years ago in may 1998, the Web authors’ community has been requesting a way of defining variables in CSS. Variables allow to define stylesheet-wide values identified by a token and usable in all CSS declarations. If a value is often used in a stylesheet - a common example is the value of the color or background-color properties - it’s then easy to update the whole stylesheet statically or dynamically modifying just one variable instead of modifying all style rules applying the property/value pair. We expect CSS Variables to receive a very positive feedback from both the Web authors’ community and browser vendors.

Ok, ein wenig dauert’s ja vielleicht noch,… aber man darf hoffen.
