I am very new, I don't able to understand how to follow and read the
specs correctly. I am currently reading from
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/#minitoc . But I don't see
the links you have given are part of the specs I am reading. What is
the standard documentation which I should follow ?
