Hello Eduard,

I registered your comments.

    CSS is already implemented, yes. Still I had to use workarounds for
IE7 when designing a menu-based webpage.
    And onmouseover/out with different event transporting mechanisms is
not nice when wanting to get a particular element. IE has non-standard
onmouseenter/leave for this. Yet this also is troublesome, perhaps
buggily implemented.
    Such bugs were due to things like padding and margin in the past
which weren't correctly implemented. With pure boxes you won't need
those. Eg. for borders simply put a box inside a box, make the inside
box opaque and have the other box contain a flat color, now you know
exactly how many pixels the border consists of at which position.
    I haven't come across UA custom styling much, I neglected
accessibility, yes, I apologize. I was writing from my experience of the
websites I saw browsed which are entertainment websites mostly (espn,
ign) and the few "page" design attempts from me for specific purposes
(as a non-professional).

    Perhaps all the tools one needs to design exactly what one wants are
already present, Idk (too expensive probably). Yet if one does a new
version of HTML, perhaps one should think about all the troubles which
exist today and attempt to specify a more simple "recursiveable"
language (see my comment regarding borders above) (also for all those
beginners in the new decades still using "text"-editors).

Thanks and BR


Lars Hansen
