The more I read the document, the more I'm convinced that it's a machine
translation.

Text contains awkward phrases, typos and grammatical errors. It's clear the
document was not proofread

Here are some examples:

"The Extended Box Model обеспечивает дополнительный контроль над
позиционирование полаваючих блоков и размером окна. "

"Поскольку большая часть CSS находятся в стадии разработки, и часто трудно
понять их строение, рабочая группа CSS решили опубликовать этот документ,
содержащий только те части CSS которые "

Unfortunately the quality of Ukrainian translation is at about the same
level as Russian. It has a lot of grammatical and stylistic errors. Text is
very difficult to understand:

"Селектори використову╓ться для вибору елемент╕в в HTML або XML документах"
и т.д.


I have not had a chance to read the documents closely. However, the first
few paragraphs indicate the work is not ready for publication. This
translation is useless for Russian and Ukrainian users.
