Agreed about more graphical examples, and they will come, but they
take time to create. Text is so much easier...

The official, full name is "CSS level 3." But because that is quite a
mouthful, it's abreviated to "CSS3." In fact, my intention is to
consistently use "CSS3" in the spec, except when there is a specific
reason to stress the word "level." But I see that there are is an
occurrence of "CSS level 3" where "CSS3" would do fine, so I will
change it. I will also add a sentence near the start that says
explicitly that "CSS level 3" is referred to as "CSS3" in the rest of
the spec.

HTML tend to be shorter than XHTML, which is helpful in examples. I'll
indicate what format (HTML, XHTML or other) each of the examples is
