I did report a bug, but I would note to this list that the table I cited has been corrected in the Candidate Release CSS 2.1 specification:
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/media.html#media-groups

Please also note that emboss has changed to embossed (even though print did not become printed), but this has little practical impact since it would seem from our discussion that either media type is totally unsupported...

I am intrigued by the generated content features of CSS2 as highlighted by Patrick and Chaals.  From what I know of Braille, it does seem quite applicable to the facilitation of embossing.

Somewhat regretfully, I don't anticipate spending much time on this either.
It would seem that the browser UA, in addition to robust CSS2 support, would require an explicit Emboss command, just as Printing is an integrated menu item.  How else would the opportunity to apply formatting for an emboss(ed) media type be applicable?
