These are mostly minor editorial comments for your "CSS3 module: text"
Last Call Working Draft [1]. For use in prose and headlines it would
help if the title was capitalized: CSS3 Module: Text.

I also had a comment on one property: Line feed is two words [2]
(reported and not fixed in XSL [3,4]). The 'linefeed-treatment'
property should be 'line-feed-treatment' and globally in the prose
(which switches back and forth now), s/linefeed/line feed/. I would
say so somehow if you absolutely have to match XSL.

Images like this one [5] that are black on transparent need a
background color for people using a light on dark user style sheet
otherwise they can be invisible.

The white tables could use cellpadding="3" or so.

UAX #9 can be a normative reference. It's a free resource of interest
that doesn't appear to be superseded: http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr9/

s/Unicode Standard ([UNICODE] bidirectional algorithm/Unicode Standard
([UNICODE]) bidirectional (Bidi) algorithm ([UAX-9])/  and then in
later instances, "Unicode Bidi algorithm" and "Bidi algorithm" can
stand alone when you need them to.

In the first occurrence, s/user agent/user agent (UA)/ and then you can
use "UA" standalone when you need to.

For RFC 2119 key words, "For legibility these keywords are used in
lowercase form." Markup suggestion here:
http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#RFCs

The titles of references should be links to dated versions. Suggestions
