CSS1 becomes W3C Proposed Recommendation

If we want to change the CSS class selector character from ".", we should
set whatever political process is needed into motion immediately. There are
only a few implementations now. We should fix this now.

We should also consider approaching the HTML ERB to ask them to change the
HTML DTD to be compatible with the XML-HTML DTD as soon as possible (HTML
3.2? Cougar?). This change should not invalidate current documents.

W3C Proposed Recommendation. From [1]:
