Although TECHNICALLY this is off-topic (as mentioned before), a lot of those 
properties are not being REMOVED; they're being bumped from CSS2 to CSS3 due 
to lack of implementations.  The ones that ARE being removed (like the entire 
aural category and some of the paged stuff) are being removed because they 
were badly defined before and should never have been in CSS2 in the first 
place (hence why most of them are unsupported).  Aural especially has been 
noted as being nearly impossible to implement right; as a result, no screen 
readers use it and CSS3 is proposing a simpler module to replace it.

Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
