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
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-CSS21-20020802>).



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.


"http://www.myorg.org/style/basic.css"
...
"http://www.myorg.org/style/yellow"

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.
