Ok, thanks for considering it. Would it be possible/useful to remove the 
HTML example and remove the fallback pixels (both of those are new to 
CSS 2.1 i belive)?

eg:
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#replaced-element
"(for example a blank HTML document)"

http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#inline-replaced-width
"becomes 300px. If 300px is too wide to fit the device, UAs should use 
the width of the largest rectangle that has a 2:1 ratio and fits the 
device instead."
