This is still in draft but it would be a really good feature for web designers to achieve more graphic consistency across different browsers.

Summary: Introduce CSS3 white-space-collapsing → implement css3-text 'white-space-collapsing' and 'text-wrap'
White-space-collapsing has been renamed in text-space-collapse in latest Editor's draft: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-space-collapse

(Adapted the summary, added the dev-doc-needed so that we don't forget to document it once implemented)

Summary: implement css3-text 'white-space-collapsing' and 'text-wrap' → implement css3-text 'text-space-collapse' and 'text-wrap'
Adding 'text-space-trim' to the summary so people searching find this.

Latest ED: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-4/#white-space-trim
Summary: implement css3-text 'text-space-collapse' and 'text-wrap' → implement css3-text 'text-space-collapse', 'text-space-trim' and 'text-wrap'
Blocks: css-text-3
As percyley already pointed out, these properties were moved to level 4 of the spec.
Also, I am wondering whether this bug should be split up into three, because 'text-space-collapse', 'text-space-trim', and 'text-wrap' are three individual properties.

Tantek, can you clarify that, please?

Sean, could you please tell whether this bug should be split up into three individual ones for each new property?

Flags: needinfo?(tantek) → needinfo?(svoisen)

I don't have strong opinions on splitting the bug until we start the work on it, at which point we probably should since each property would have a different set of patches.

Severity: normal → N/A
Flags: needinfo?(svoisen)
Priority: -- → P3
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

As discussed earlier, the individual properties should have their own bugs for tracking their implementation. Therefore I've now split out the implementation of text-wrap into bug 1758391, also as it seems independent of text-space-trim and text-space-collapse. I've removed text-space-collapse for now as an issue in the specification indicates that it still needs more discussion and it may be changed.

So this bug now focuses on the implementation of text-space-trim.
