Looking over the CSS 2.1 Working Draft,
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030128>, I noticed that the definition
table for the 'color' property says

Percentages: N/A

which isn't accurate. While 'color' does not permit <percentage> values,
percentages may appear within <color> values, which 'color' does allow. A
better description would be

Percentages: as described for <color> values

with "<color> values" linked to the definition,
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#value-def-color>. The definition
tables for the following properties should use the new percentages
description.

background-color 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/colors.html#propdef-background-color>

border-color
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#propdef-border-color>

border-top-color
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#propdef-border-top-color>

border-right-color
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#propdef-border-right-color>

border-bottom-color
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#propdef-border-bottom-color>

border-left-color
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#propdef-border-left-color>

outline-color
