Candidate Recommendation Exit Criteria
______________________________________

Can we move this section into 2. Conformance? I don't think it's a good
idea to have too much content before Table of contents, not to mention
that this spec isn't yet at CR. (Disclaimer: I am not familiar with the
W3C process so I might be missing some rules here.)

Overview
________

Ditto. "This specification contains:" says pretty much the same as
what's in 1.1 Purpose already.

2.1. Definitions
________________

"defined by CSS2.1" can link to
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#user-agent instead of
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#defs

8.2. Overflow Ellipsis: the ‘text-overflow’ property
______________________________________________________

  # Value:	 ( clip | ellipsis | <string> ){1,2} | inherit

should read "[ clip | ellipsis | <string> ]".

9.2.1. Sequential navigation order: the ‘nav-index’ property
______________________________________________________________

The spec does reference HTML5 at some point so I am not sure if
referencing 'tabindex' in HTML4 instead of HTML5 is such a good idea.

9.2.3. Input method editor: the ‘ime-mode’ property
_____________________________________________________

Example 12 is the only code snippet where you use class=html. For
editorial consistency, all HTML/XHTML snippets should use it (or not use
it).


  # Note: In general, it's not appropriate for a public web site to
  # manipulate the IME mode setting. This property should be used for
  # web applications and the like.

I am not sure we are still in the era where we can tell "public web
site" from "web applications".

Appendix D. Default style sheet additions for HTML
__________________________________________________

Perhaps you should link to the rendering section of the HTML spec there
as this section is not comprehensive.


  # input[type=reset]
  # {
  # /* default content of HTML4/XHTML1 input type=reset button */
  #  content: "Reset";
  # }
  #
  # input[type=submit]
  # {
  # /* default content of HTML4/XHTML1 input type=submit button */
  # content: "Submit";
  # }

It should be mentioned that these are locale-dependent.
