Yeah, these looked okay. I'm not sure we need the prefixes, though I've
left them in all your examples. It's a nice touch, so why not. It's just
that most developers are sick of prefixes and we're all looking forward to
them going the way of the dodo.

But hey, you don't need me to do this editing for you. Go ahead and create
an account:
http://docs.webplatform.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=css&type=signup

And dive right in, edit away!

If you've got some more time this week, check out the list of properties
we're currently working on; see the Web Platform Wednesday page:
http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Meta:web_platform_wednesday

This page has more information on how to go about editing CSS properties,
with links to the editing guide and a rather amateurish tutorial video by
yours truly. (I'd appreciate any feedback on the video.)

We're going to continue working on CSS properties in coming weeks, as well.
We hope you can join us!
