3. Add Typographic conventions section?

  See:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/introduction.html#typographic-conventions

  Pick better colors!!  Yellow on green = yuck!

The CSSWG recently revamped its spec conventions based on the input of
one of our members who is a fairly skilled designer.  It's undergoing
a trial run in several currently-edited specs like
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-values>.

I find it pretty attractive, personally.  We could take the same or a
similar design for SVG specs.

I have started an experiment with Ben Schwartz to improve the legibility of specs. and we have a prototype in place:

https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/FXTF/raw-file/0ae665082f8d/custom/index.html

This does not have all of Ben's input yet, but I thought I would share the progress on this proposal. Ben has done great work in the Whatwg:
