Hi Tantek,

Thanks for the rephrasing, I think it is indeed an improvement over what I had written. A few nitpicks:

> The 'resize' property does not apply to generated content, the result is undefined.

If it does not apply, then the result is defined: nothing happens. I think it would be better to say

"The effects of the 'resize' property on the generated content pseudo-elements is undefined."

The bikeshed markup should be <a spec="css-style-attr">style attribute</a>, not 'style', and if you do that, you can drop the Ignored Term.

> The user agent should allow the user to resize the element with no other constraints than what is imposed by min-width, max-width, min-height, and max-height. (at risk since only Firefox currently supports this).

Mirroring what we did with negative values constraints on outline-offset, I'd rather have "must" in the normative prose, together with an "at risk due to interoperability problems, and thus might be dropped from a must to a should."

> The user agent may restrict the resizing range to something suitable, such as between the original formatted size of the element, and large enough to encompass all the elementís contents.

AFAICT, this paragraph contradicts the previous one. Delete it?
