The current draft of SVG 2.0 makes use of the style sheet for CSS specs. I really facilitate it, but it also leads to some questions.

The CSS WG has some style guidelines: http://www.w3.org/Style/spec-mark-up

How much do we want to follow this guideline? I am not necessarily speaking about the short hands like: 'property' that gets transformed to <a class=property

I am more speaking about the formatting of elements, attributes, properties and values.

Just elements and attributes have a certain styling. But the font size is smaller then the rest of the text and the font weight is bold. Both is not the case for CSS.

Values are surrounded by double quotes and sometimes bold but sometimes not. In CSS we have single quotes and blueish color, like for properties.

The blueish color differs between SVG and CSS.

There are more differences, but in general I just want to know if we try to adapt our design to CSS3 as much as possible, or if we want to continue with the old SVG design.
