HTML5 consumers will be required to recognize @style and handle it in  
a manner consistent with how it is handled today. The change is that  
producers of conforming HTML5 will be prevented from using it. All  
existing documents will continue to be rendered as they are now --  
that is why HTML5 is compatible with legacy content.
