Hello www-style,

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

The abstract says that CSS 2.1 is for "to structured documents (e.g.,
HTML documents and XML applications)" but then removes items (relative
to CSS2.0) such as @font-face because they have not been implemented in
HTML browsers, regardless of whether they have been implemented with XML
applications.
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/

and yet later it says

   CSS2.1 aims to reflect what CSS features are reasonably widely
   implemented for HTML and XML languages in general (rather than only
   for a particular XML language, or only for HTML)
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/about.html#q1

There are a number of more detailed comments that will be sent relating
to the general theme of applicability to XML in general and to SVG in
particular.
