These are minor editorial comments for your "CSS3 module: Color"
Last Call Working Draft [1]. Overall it is beautiful.

The justified text is a little choppy. It sometimes slows down
reading, see screen shot [3]. It makes the clipboard crazy in Mac IE
5.1.6. Can you get by without text-align: justify in [4]?

The profile tables could use a few pixels of padding. Also in the
profile tables, some td's contain p's, some don't. The td's will look
more similar if they all don't.

As Simon Jessey reported for CSS3 Text, the property column in the
Property Index is cut off on the left. I am looking in IE 5.1.6, Mac OS
9.2.1.

I hope that when the CSS3 modules reach late maturity levels that they
will all use US English capitalization. W3C uses en-US. W3C entities
should match capitalization in the W3C Process Document [2]. Those
corrections are included below except for headings.
