There are some problem with the style(on screen and printing). I have 
tested with Firefox 3.6.13 and chromium 9.0 under Ubuntu.

1) the links look like normal text in prints. No underline or other way 
of highlighting. Text are hard to follow this way e.g. 3.2 last line of 
the first paragraph: "See simple alpha compositing for details."

Please make it clear that this is a link(to a other Chapter of the same 
document).  I think there are more misunderstandings because it is not 
clear it is a link.

2) Please use thead elements for the table headers. The table of 4.3 is 
multiple pages long and with a automatic added header at the page head 
much more usable.

3) Please split the long table of chapter 4.3 into two tables and make 
same side-by-side. Also the list of chapter 4.5.1 and the index is a 
pages(and also screen) wasting style. Maybe apply column-count: 2 (4 for 
index) or splitting them and position them side-by-side is a alternate.

4) Chapter 4.5.1 starts with "Deprecated. ..." I think it is better to 
write "The uses of this chapter is deprecated. ..." or "The uses of CSS2 
system colors is deprecated".

5) Chapter 6 starts with "This appendix is .." this is a chapter not a 
appendix, or?

6) The most words of the index are color names. I recommend to write a 
line like "the color names are excluded, but can be all be found in 
chapter 4.3 .".

7) Why are some paragraphs are bold and other not? Please provide a 
explanation before the index.

8) Other W3C Documents about CSS uses BNF aside to the text to describe 
the syntactic. But in this documents is not a single one. Why?

9) Please define a font-size for border for printing with a value 
between 10 - 12 point. The default font size of the current browsers is 
16 point or more(as for the screen) which is really big.
