Hi! I'm sorry I missed your comments. Replies below.

(In the future, if you add the subject code requested in the Status
section of the spec, it's less likely your comments will get lost.)

The syntax of a property, in general, is given in the property definition
table. Occasionally, it may be supplemented by additional restrictions in
the prose, if the restriction is difficult to represent in the grammar,
but in this case the restriction you're looking for is in the grammar of
the property value definition:

   [ <length> | <percentage> ]{1,4} [ / [ <length> | <percentage> ]{1,4} ]?

The slash and the second [<length>|<percentage>] set are required to appear
together, if they appear at all.

Fixed. Will appear in the next publication. :)

Also fixed.

Thanks for taking the trouble to comment. I apologize for not catching your
email sooner.
