comment When using a stacked font-family, what does the browser use when NONE of the specified fonts are present?
(And of course, if we really start picking nits, there's the fact that CSS font fallback is done on a per-glyph basis. So while the standard requires every browser to have a "sans-serif" font family, it does not, AFAICT, require the fonts in that family to actually contain any glyphs.)

comment When using a stacked font-family, what does the browser use when NONE of the specified fonts are present?
Technically, the standard says that "All five generic font families are defined to exist in all CSS implementations (they need not necessarily map to five distinct actual fonts)." So every CSS-compliant browser does have a "sans-serif" generic font family, although it's not strictly guaranteed to map to an actual sans-serif font. But yes, this is a very hair-splitting distinction.

If your browser is using Times New Roman as its default sans-serif font, something is seriously screwed up. But, yes, without that sans-serif at the end, the browser would pick its default fallback font, which is typically the same as the default serif font, and quite often Times New Roman or something similar.

comment Can an HTTP status 400 be a substitute for a 410?
@AnubianNoob: "Gone" is, more properly, a subset of "Not Found"; if it's gone, it's not there to be found any more. Indeed, the 410 Gone status code was added in HTTP/1.1 basically as a more specific and emphatic version of 404, to let servers explicitly indicate that a formerly valid resource has been deliberately and permanently removed (as opposed to, say, just being accidentally or temporarily inaccessible).

+1, agreed. A "404 Not Found" response would also be a valid choice here.
