Just wanted to be complete. :)

(This was never clear to me, either on the mailing list or on the telecon.)

THANK YOU!!!!

I can work with that.

Given Proposal 1 as:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Feb/0186.html

Proposal 2 is:

   In the paragraph
     # It is not defined what these transitions look like, but a gradient is recommended
     # for color transitions that don't involve dotted or dashed borders.
   replace 'recommended' with 'suggested'.
     | It is not defined what these transitions look like, but a gradient is suggested
     | for color transitions that don't involve dotted or dashed borders.

and Proposal 3 is
   In the paragraph
     # It is not defined what these transitions look like, but a gradient is recommended
     # for color transitions that don't involve dotted or dashed borders.
   replace the comma with a period and remove the rest of the sentence, i.e.
     | It is not defined what these transitions look like.

Let me know if either 2 or 3 is satisfactory, and if so, we can take this to the WG
for a formal decision. (If not, please explain what the remaining problems are.)

Thanks~
