Re: Values of CSS properties

Hi, Lea: Are you talking about where it lists the values:


20px 40px
     Any standard CSS...

Yes, I agree: <length> is better than some arbitrary example value.

I see this pattern in many CSS properties. For example,

have generic data types as values (e.g. length), others try to use
specific examples.
What¡¯s the correct way?
Personally, I think specific examples can be confusing, since the reader
needs to extrapolate the general rule.
