RE: [css3-*] Defining support for the inherit keyword

What about making "Value:" label to a hyperlink to the section describing how to read the value of the row?

It might help people like me who just skips introductions and wonders what "||" means or if 'inherit' is supported without sacrificing readability.

No, I'd do what I'm doing for values in general: define how the module interacts with features in 2.1, and then explain and allow that the combination with other modules may modify this. For example, implementing both css3-background with css3-values will allow 'initial', in addition to 'inherit', on all the background properties.
