I'm looking forward to this, hope I can make it.

Will there be mention of "responsive design" (using CSS media queries)?

They're a lovely way to get a 3-column page to collapse to 2 columns, 
then 1 column as the window size shrinks.  Using minimal code, usually a 
redefinition of a grid-template-columns, grid-area layout, or a

Also, a really exciting new CSS is the :has() pseudo element.

"Apply this style (i.e. red text) to all <div> that contain an image":

 > div:has(img) {color: red;}

It kinda reverses the cascading direction of Cascading Style Sheets, 
saying to look *backwards* at an img tag for a div tag, then do ... 

The new HTML modal looks interesting too.  So much is changing in this 
space, it's hard to keep up.

Looking forward to your presentation.
