I have removed the curve keyword, and changed the grammar to note the
comma separators. Here are the updated basic shapes functions:

rectangle([<length>|<percentage>][, [<length>|<percentage>]]{3,5})

inset-rectangle([<length>|<percentage>][, [<length>|<percentage>]]{3,5})

circle([<length>|<percentage>][, [<length>|<percentage>]]{2})

ellipse([<length>|<percentage>][, [<length>|<percentage>]]{3})

polygon([<fill-rule>,]?[<length>|<percentage>]{2}#)

Thanks,

Alan
