The HTML 4.0 Proposed Recommendation and CSS2 Working Draft differ 
slightly in their lists of media descriptors at [1] and [2], respectively. 
 While the CSS2 WD does not claim to present a definitive list, it would 
be nice if the two specs were somewhat in sync.

The CSS2 WD defines 'screen' as "intended primarily for scrolled color 
computer screens", but, unlike the HTML 4.0 PR, does not specify whether 
UAs should apply 'screen' style sheets to print and projection media as 
well.

The CSS2 WD is also missing HTML 4.0's 'tty' media descriptor.
