This is an official comment on behalf of the CSS working group.

I've made this change:

-<p>Working with HTML, authors may use the period (U+002E,
-<code>.</code>) notation as an alternative to the <code>~=</code>
+<p>Working with HTML, authors may use the "full stop" notation
+(U+002E, <code>.</code>) as an alternative to the <code>~=</code>
 notation when representing the <code>class</code> attribute. Thus, for
 HTML, <code>div.value</code> and <code>div[class~=value]</code> have
 the same meaning. The attribute value must immediately follow the
-&quot;period&quot; (<code>.</code>).</p>
+&quot;full stop&quot; (<code>.</code>).</p>

Please let us know if this does not satisfy your request.
