[css3-page] Support for @page :left, :right, :first selectors (pseudo-classes)


(Core :: Printing: Output, task)

(Keywords: css2, dev-doc-needed, testcase)


Jean-Yves, why the dev-doc-needed keyword if the pseudo-classes have not been implemented yet?

The appropriate layout component for this bug should be Printing: Output

This bug should be blocking bug 605520 and it does not block bug 115199

There is a bunch of tests on :left, :right, :first pseudo-classes at
and also at

I propose to update the summary to read:

Support for @page :left, :right, :first selectors (pseudo-classes)

so that this helps finding this bug report when searching

css2 and testcase keywords should be added

OS field should be All

Summary: Support CSS 2.1 @page Page Selectors → Support for @page :left, :right, :first selectors (pseudo-classes)
A question about the change to the Summary:  

Have all the other selectors in @Page been implemented?  If not, in which bug report is that deficiency described?
Hello David,

As far as CSS 2.1 is involved, there are only 3 selectors for @page at rule. 

CSS Paged Media Module Level 3
also lists :blank. 

Specialized/customized at-rules like {@top-left-corner, @top-left, @top-center, @top-right, @top-right-corner, ..., @bottom-right-corner} are different issues and should probably be filed in another bug report when/once CSS Paged Media Module Level 3 reaches Candidate Recommendation.
