A few minor comments on
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-images/#linear-gradients :

First, the text:
  # "to bottom"
should probably be:
  # 'to bottom'
(and should also be styled in blue like the other such occurrences).

Likewise in the dl section "by angle", "0deg" and "90deg" should
also be styled and in single quotes.

I think the dl headings "by angle" and "by keyword" are a little
confusing since they might lead someone to think that the word "by"
appears in gradient syntax.  Perhaps they could either be made more
English (so that they're more obviously not a representation of
syntax) or purely syntactic?

I don't understand why "starting-point" and "ending-point" are
hyphenated throughout.  We don't do that to other multi-word terms.

Finally, I'd drop the word "then" in:
  # The point's color is then the color of the gradient line at the
  # point where this line intersects it.
since there's nothing temporal about this definition.
