"Pixelschubser"[1] will love this one, once it gets implemented -- I'm
afraid we'll see a lot pages with CSS for two screen sizes (1024×768px and
800×600px probably) with color support and nothing else. It may also become
a handy way to hide badly degrading CSS3 files from older [i.e. current]
browsers.
One thing made me wonder: What's the correct display-height and
display-width for virtually enlarged desktops? Say a 2048×768px area mapped
to a screen displaying just 1024×768px.

Small errors I noticed:
* 2. - ordered list, first item: the period is misplaced.
* 3.1. - table, first row, third column: <del>the</del>.
* 4. - example triplet: The three examples are not HTML, XHTML and XML, but
XML, XHTML and CSS. In the middle code sniplet 'rel="stylesheet"' appears
twice.
* In the source "<pre><span ...>" is used where one (i.e. I) would expect
"<pre><code ...>".

[1] There's no suitable translation I'm aware of for those people loving
blind GIFs, layout tables and CSS positioning.
