Yes, I agree with you on the DC-biasing resistor.
The reason for asking #3 is that I read an article the other day from Web -
I don't remember what the site was right now - saying resistor connection in
series with the cap could improve the PECL termination. So I was wondering
if it really works because I'm working on PECL-to-PECL interface for my
