That example is from the *previous* (LCWD) version of the spec:

 http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-css3-ui-20030703#resize

And is not present in the CR:

 http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/CR-css3-ui-20040511#resize


Please always read (and make comments on) the *CURRENT* version:

 http://www.w3.rg/TR/css3-ui#resize

You're making the same error that I pointed out in the previous email.

:root (which is a pseudo-class not a pseudo-element) is not the same as the
window.

Don't apologize.  Just read the relevant specs before commenting.

Why?

Again, please read CSS2.1 (preferably cover-to-cover), especially the
section on user style sheets and !important.
