Hello www-style,

This comment is sent from both the CDF WG and the SVG WG.

CSS 2.1 is said to be both a development from CSS 2.0 (and CSS 1.0 )and
a replacement for CSS 2.0; later it is described as a partial
replacement for CSS2.0, with removed features being defined in CSS2; it
is also stated that such features may move into CSS3. Will CSS 1.0 and
2.0 continue to be maintained, with eratta, or are they abandoned?
In addition, later the spec talks of removing features from CSS2:

  Removing CSS2 features that will be obsoleted by CSS3, thus
  encouraging adoption of the proposed CSS3 features in their place.
