I think it would be a very good idea to add a CSS3 Selector pointer, my 
initial concern is the difficulty in the AT constructing a Selector which 
uniquely identifies the relevant pieces of content, and is robust in the 
face of minor document changes, but that problem exists for most of the 
pointers, so it's well worth adding, and I will like to in the next draft...

HTML Pointers are very similar to XML Pointers, but are basically specified 
against a DOM that may not be consistent due to ivalidaty rules, part of the 
Pointers doc will explain this hopefully

Cheers,
