RE: [css3-images] Resolving on gradient issues

JumpOffABridgeWard is a bad rationalization.

Let me be more explicit:  I'm against creating the words "topward" and "bottomward" and using them in CSS3 gradients.

It's a general-use suffix that turns things into a direction.

OED lists "aftward", "airward", "bankward", "barnward", "beachward", "bedward", "bridgeward", "childward", "cloudward", "coastward", "couchward"
"creekward" ...

If couchward is a word, I think topward should be allowed to be a word. :)
