Please add markup throughout the CSS 2.1 specification to group and 
identify important constructs, especially in the formal grammar. Each 
token type definition, macro definition, and production should have an 
ID. It would be nice if each grammatical term were linked to its 

Although definition lists capture the meaning, they do not provide 
sufficient basis for identification, as there is no element to group 
definienda with their respective definientia.

Tables come to mind as a moderate solution. I have a revision that uses 
tables and assigns IDs to table rows, which represent entire 
definitions. Is this of interest to the Working Group?

Etan Wexler.
