Anton,

There is also the string "free to make a guess" (section 10) and "round"
and possibly the word "may".
There is also not defining keyword values. E.g. thin is not necessarly 1px
wide: it could be 2px, or 3px, etc. it is all up to the user agent to
choose such value.
Default, initial values are also up to user agents. The whole appendix D
is informative, not normative.
