This is the CSS WG's response to an issue you raised on the last CSS
2.1 draft (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915). We want to
publish CSS 2.1 as a CR in about two weeks. Please let us know this
week if you think our response is wrong.

Your e-mail:
    Default Attributes
    S5.8.2 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915/selector.html#q11>
    #    EXAMPLE { /*... default property settings ...*/ }
    # Because this selector is less specific than an attribute selector,
    # it will only be used for the default case.
    This is false. The selector will be used for all cases, not just the
    default case. If a declaration from this rule conflicts with one from
    a more specific rule, then it will be overridden--but the declaration
    still applies.

CSS WG response:
    It's only an example and is accurate enough, we think. (We
    couldn't come up with better text that didn't sound stilted.)

For the CSS WG,
