+    <p>While support for CSS as a whole is not required of
+    implementations of this specification (though it is encouraged, at
+    least for Web browsers), some features are defined in terms of
+    specific CSS requirements.</p>
+    <p>In particular, some features require that a string be
+    <dfn id="parsed-as-a-css-color-value">parsed as a CSS &lt;color&gt; value</dfn>. When parsing a CSS
+    value, user agents are required by the CSS specifications to apply
+    some error handling rules. These apply to this specification also.
+    <a href="#refsCSSCOLOR">[CSSCOLOR]</a> <a href="#refsCSS">[CSS]</a></p>
+    <p class="example">For example, user agents are required to close
+    all open constructs upon finding the end of a style sheet
+    unexpectedly. Thus, when parsing the string "<code title="">rgb(0,0,0</code>" (with a missing close-parenthesis) for
+    a color value, the close parenthesis is implied by this error
+    handling rule, and a value is obtained (the color 'black').
+    However, the similar construct "<code title="">rgb(0,0,</code>"
+    (with both a missing parenthesis and a missing "blue" value)
+    cannot be parsed, as it closing the open construct does not result
+    in a viable value.</p>
+   </dd>
   </dl><p>This specification does not <em>require</em> support of any
   particular network protocol, style sheet language, scripting
   language, or any of the DOM specifications beyond those described
