* We could also perhaps omit "attains" as the item is often
    conformant without effort, for example "Describes a product
    or service that satisfies all the requirements..."

Render. "The user agent may emphasis the content responding to CSS

Linearized content. "...web content in a sequential order..." I think that  
non-linearized content also has a sequential order. The point is that the  
sequence may be different. I think linearisation is about removing
