Question lspci -vvv output


I was just messing with lspci and noticed that if you put in -vvv you get LOTS of information about the devices.
Could somebody please explain to me what all of it means?

For example:

00:10.4 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 86) (prog-if 20 [EHCI])
        Subsystem: Giga-byte Technology GA-7VAX Mainboard
        Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV+ VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
        Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
        Latency: 32, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
        Interrupt: pin C routed to IRQ 6
        Region 0: Memory at de000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
        Capabilities: [80] Power Management version 2
                Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1+ D2+ AuxCurrent=375mA PME(D0+,D1+,D2+,D3hot+,D3cold+)
                Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME-
        Kernel driver in use: ehci_hcd
There's no real problem, it's just something I'm wondering about. Also, what do the + and - mean before and after some of the enteries?
