  Dear Ian,

Thanks for your comments on the Last Call version of the QA Framework:
Specification Guidelines[0] - 22 November 2004

After two weeks from now (on May 18, 2005), the lack of answer will  
be considered as if you had accepted the comment.

Original comment (issue 1046 [1])

Thank you for your comment, which the QA Working Group has accepted.   
We have reworded the affected section as you recommended and it now  
reads [2]

“The CSS2.1 [CSS2.1] specification defines the notion of vendor- 
specific extension. An initial dash or underscore is guaranteed never  
to be used in a property or keyword by any current or future level of  
CSS. Thus typical CSS implementations may not recognize such  
properties and may ignore them according to the rules for handling  
parsing errors. However, because the initial dash or underscore is  
part of the grammar, CSS2.1 implementers should always be able to use  
a CSS-conforming parser, whether or not they support any vendor- 
specific extensions.”
