The WYSIWYG term was dropped because it's not appropriate for web tools (for 
instance reader's CSS style can alterate author's one).

The Amaya goal is to become more and more useful for naive users.

All CSS properties are not implemented yet, but a large set is already 
supported (enough for a large set of web pages).
New properties are added step by step and specific bugs like those pointed by 
J. Russell are fixed as soon as possible.
