  Comments on 13 November 2001 Candidate Recommendation /Selectors/


    Abstract

    * The title should be like the other CSS3 modules like "CSS3 module:
      Selectors".
    * The abstract is incorrect.  I believe CSS can also be applied to
      SGML or probably other languages provided that an implementation
      is available.
    * Given the usage of "selectors" in the abstract, <dfn> is probably
      better than <em>.  The comma should not be included in the element.
    * A selector can match 0 elements of a document.


    Status of this Document

    * The working drafts link should probably include the fragment
      identifier for the appropriate section.


    Dependencies with other CSS3 modules

    * Title should be "Dependencies on other CSS3 modules".  "with"
      implies the wrong relationship.
    * Link the dependencies (at least in final version)


    Contents

    * Numbering should be from stylesheet.
    * The deep content items should still be marked up as lists.  Also,
      in current state, they break the WCAG guideline regarding having a
      non-whitespace character between adjacent links.


    Context

    * "ad minima" should be <span lang="la"> and styled with [lang] {
      text-decoration: italic } and [lang="en"] to not italicize the
      English text.  It should really be English though since ad minima
      and "at the minimum" mean the same thing without losing much space
      or dealing with markup issues

More to come probably.

If "Actions speak louder than words," how is that "The pen is mightier than the sword."?
