This also occurs in the document

occurs => occur

c.f.:

this is the only case of "user agent":

there are six instances of "user agents"

you inconsistently use UA (~23) / UAs (~4). I'd encourage you to pick
only one set (or possibly only a single form).

> Regardless of the text-wrap value, lines always break at forced breaks: for all values, line-breaking behavior defined for the BK, CR, LF, CM NL, and SG line breaking classes in [UAX14] must be honored.

If there's a reason for the lack of a comma between CM and NL, it
would be good to explain it with prose.

> The UA may use the width of the containing block, the text’s language, and other factors in assigning priorities. As long as care is taken to avoid such awkward breaks, allowing breaks at appropriate punctuation other than spaces is recommended, as it results in more even-looking margins, particularly in narrow measures.

measures => areas ??

> line
> Force a line break immediately before/after the box if box is an inline-level box.

if box => if the box

c.f.:
> flex
> Force a flex line break immediately before/after the box if the box is a flex item in a multi-line flex container.


> then the word must not be hyphenated. Nonspacing combining marks (Unicode class) and intra-word punctuation (Unicode classes P*) do not count towards the minimum.

The ¶ here makes this hard to read --  Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel
Mac OS X 10.6; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0

missing Oxford comma:
> This property indicates hyphenation behavior at the end of elements, column, pages and spreads.

> fullwidth middle dot punctuation Includes MIDDLE DOT (U+00B7), HYPHENATION POINT (U+2027), and KATAKANA MIDDLE DOT (U+30FB). May also include fullwidth colon punctuation and/or fullwidth dot punctuation (see below).

could "see below" please be a link to an anchor?

> Note that for Chinese fonts at least, the author observes that the standard convention is often not followed.

who is "the author" here?
