Media Queries - 6 June 2007

'not' and unknown media types:

Section 3 says: "The presence of the keyword 'not' at the beginning of the
query negates the results."  Section 4 says: "Media queries involving
unknown media types are always false".

When I read that, the word 'always' led me to wonder whether or not unknown
media types trump the section 3 definition of 'not'.  I suggest the
following clarifications:

1) remove the word "always" from the section 4 statement
2) Add an example showing that the following media query is true:

     @media not 3d-glasses { ... }
