r12a has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text] Make references more specific ==
10.2. Character Class Spacing: the text-spacing property

> Note: A commonly used algorithm for determining this behavior is specified in [JLREQ].

We're writing documents in HTML, where we can point to relevant sections in documents, but these references are the equivalent of saying "Here's a book, it's in there somewhere, i'll let you figure out if you can find what i was thinking of." (literally, since i have a copy of the 400-page, published JLREQ book on my shelf.)

It's fine to keep the [JLREQ] footnote reference, but please also point to the appropriate section(s) in jlreq as well.

thank you. rant over.
