Re: Comments on CSS3 text module


   In addition to my earlier comments to


  I miss a definition of the keywords "may", "must", etc., some W3C
  technical reports reference RFC 2119, this should be done here, too.

  It would be helpful for authors not familiar to terms used throughout
  the specification to include a little dictionary for these terms, e.g.
  'glyph', 'kerning', 'writing system' and 'character repertoire'

  There are _editor's_ notes in red and green and I got no idea what the
  different colors are supposed to tell me

figure 3.2.8:

  the asterisk is ambigous here, there are two definitions of what the
  astersik stands for and one could not distinguish between those two

section 7.1:

  it's "U+00AD SOFT HYPHEN" without a white-space between U+ and 00AD

section 8.4:

  "p { width :100px; margin-top : 50px; margin-left : 50px; }"

  all CSS Level 3 modules should share the same CSS writing style, so
  this should be at least

    p { width: 100px; margin-top: 50px; margin-left: 50px }


    p {
      width: 100px;
      margin-top: 50px;
      margin-left: 50px;

  text-overflow-ellipsis: <ellipsis-end> reads:

    "In a horizontal text flow ('writing-mode' = 'lr-tb) [...]"

  this must be ... ('writing-mode: lr-tb')

section 12.1

  "[HTML40]" is no hyperlink; one too much 'language-specific' in the
  same paragraph


  [RUBY] has become a recommendation lately

section 3.5:

  "Use the first character descendant[, after any reordering due to
                                     ^^^ ?
   character direction and bi-directionality,] which has an unambiguous
                                            ^^^ ?
