Following are substantive comments on section 14, "Colors and Backgrounds"
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-CSS21-20020802/colors.html>), of the
Cascading Style Sheets level 2.1 draft
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-CSS21-20020802>).



14.2 The background


"Margins are always transparent so the background of the parent box always
shines through."

The second part is inaccurate.  Change the sentence to "Margins are always
transparent so the underlying boxes shine through."



14.2.1 Background properties: 'background-color', 'background-image',
'background-repeat', 'background-attachment', 'background-position', and
'background'


"With a value pair of '2cm 2cm', the upper left corner of the image is
placed 2cm to the right and 2cm below the upper left corner of the padding
area."

To illustrate the correspondence of terms to axes, change to "With a value
pair of '2cm 1cm', the upper left corner of the image is placed 2cm to the
right and 1cm below the upper left corner of the padding area."


"If only one percentage or length value is given, it sets the horizontal
position only, the vertical position will be 50%. If two values are given,
the horizontal position comes first. Combinations of length and percentage
values are allowed, (e.g., '50% 2cm'). Negative positions are allowed.
Keywords cannot be combined with percentage values or length values (all
possible combinations are given above)."

Change "value" to "term".  Change the four occurrences of "values" to "terms".
