Following are editorial suggestions for section 4, "CSS 2.1 syntax and
basic data types"
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-CSS21-20020802/selector.html>), of the
Cascading Style Sheets level 2.1 draft

4.1.1 Tokenization

"All levels of CSS -- level 1, level 2, and any future levels -- use the
same core syntax."

Use real em dashes in place of "--".

4.3.2 Lengths

"in: inches -- 1 inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters"

Use a real em dash.

4.3.4 URL + URN = URI

"body { background: url("http://www.bg.com/pinkish.png") }"

The domain <bg.com> is taken.  I suggest <example.com>.

"li { list-style: url(http://www.redballs.com/redball.png) disc }"

The domain <redballs.com>, too, is taken.


The domain <myorg.org> is not yet taken.  The future is unpredictable,
though, and I suggest <example.org>.

4.3.5 Colors

"the three rules below"

But there are four.

"Other devices, such as printers, have different gamuts to sRGB"

Change "to" to "than".

4.4 CSS document representation

"At most one @charset rule may appear in an external style sheet -- it must
not appear in an embedded style sheet -- and it must appear at the very
start of the document"

Use real em dashes.
