CSS's Top 10 List

Chris Toshok, Eric Pollmann, Harish Dhurvasula, Nisheeth Ranjan, Suresh Duddi

Goal: To get traction on fixing the bugs in mozilla's CSS-1 implementation
Task: Fix the 10 bugs in CSS inheritance and formatting listed below
Start Date: Sept. 8, 1998
End Date: Sept. 18, 1998
Duration: 10 days
Status: Partially done

Harish and Eric are working full time on improving CSS stability in mozilla. Please help out in this effort in any way you can. If you are a programmer, download the source, compile it, step through the code, and fix some bugs. Once you're familiar with the code, work on CSS features. If you get stuck, post to the layout newsgroup and we'll help you. If you aren't a programmer, download a binary, run it through the W3C CSS test suite, and file bugs on us using Bugzilla.

Lets make CSS in mozilla rock!
