Yvr-sea route segment, made crossing altitude of 10000' per jawbn 3 arrival, but failed to note 250 KT restriction was 'hard,' not 'expect' as is usually the case on stars, until within a few miles of lofal. Xed lofal at approximately 280 KTS IAS. 2 comments: we were in 'slow below 10000' mindset since most stars only have 'expect' speed limits. ATC usually calls the airspeed as required. Secondly, since a 'hard' speed on a STAR isn't routine, more attention could be called to it on STAR plate by underlining, symbology.

Title: ACR LGT NON ADHERENCE TO PUBLISHED STAR. SPEED DEVIATION.
Narrative: YVR-SEA ROUTE SEGMENT, MADE XING ALT OF 10000' PER JAWBN 3 ARR, BUT FAILED TO NOTE 250 KT RESTRICTION WAS 'HARD,' NOT 'EXPECT' AS IS USUALLY THE CASE ON STARS, UNTIL WITHIN A FEW MILES OF LOFAL. XED LOFAL AT APPROX 280 KTS IAS. 2 COMMENTS: WE WERE IN 'SLOW BELOW 10000' MINDSET SINCE MOST STARS ONLY HAVE 'EXPECT' SPD LIMITS. ATC USUALLY CALLS THE AIRSPD AS REQUIRED. SECONDLY, SINCE A 'HARD' SPD ON A STAR ISN'T ROUTINE, MORE ATTN COULD BE CALLED TO IT ON STAR PLATE BY UNDERLINING, SYMBOLOGY.
