comment Why are there so many CSS properties which are essentially the same?
There are no attributes in CSS. (There are attribute selectors, but that’s a different issue.) What you are trying to ask is just “why are there vendor-prefixed versions for CSS properties?” This is a broad question and partly a matter of opinions. In particular, user-select was once part of a working draft, now withdrawn, so what you are seeing is just browser-specific properties with no definitions beyond those that each vendor might provide (in some format, usually in informal and inexact language).

Languages do not implement languages.

I read the title of the standard mentioned. To get help with what you are looking for, consider explaining what you are looking for. From the comments, it seems that it is very different from what you asked. I find it somewhat absurd to ask whether there are languages that implement a specific standard for a programming language.

@ThreaT, that’s a standard for a specific language, “M”, also known as “MUMPS”. There is no hint of the type of programming languages that you are interested in.

And this does not answer the question.

The w3schools site should not be cited as a reference, or at all; see w3fools.com

@Galaxy, it does not answer the question, and if you expect the style element apply inside the div only, you are mistaken. If you want certain styling to be applied only in some states of a single-page application, you need to do that with suitable CSS selectors and/or scripting. (Especially since the scoped attribute does not work across browsers.)

@Galaxy, I don’t see why a single-page application would lack a head element. An HTML page always has one.

@patricksweeney, I think it’s somewhat theoretical in this context, but a correct observation; answer updated.
