It means that HTML 3.2 is obsolete, but most pages are still HTML 3.2 
and are still useful. Similarly the fact that CSS3 might be at a 
particular point current, does not mean that someone cannot write or 
implement CSS2 or CSS1.

No, CSS2 is incompatible with CSS1 in many areas (some are listed in 
the changes, many are not). In addition, subsequent versions of CSS do 
not reuse much of the earlier versions' language. [This of course 
increases the number of errors in the specification [perhaps CSS needs 
a bugzilla !].]
