Two small comments related to the definition of bolder/lighter in
section 15.6:

  http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/css2/fonts.html#font-boldness

Remove the two paragraphs below, with the direct mapping table
definition of bolder/lighter these are no longer valid or necessary:

  Note: A set of nested elements that mix 'bolder' and 'lighter'
  will give unpredictable results depending on the UA, OS, and font
  availability. This behavior will be more precisely defined in
  CSS3.
  
  CSS 2.1 does not specify how the computed value of font-weight is
  represented internally or externally.
 
The markup for the bolder/lighter mapping table needs to be massaged to
match the other tables just above it.

I seem to remember fantasai mentioned this at some point but I couldn't
find a pointer to that.

Regards,

John Daggett
