A quick note about the status of that document. It's almost a month
old now, and much has happened since. There has been healthy
discussions on www-style@w3.org (sometimes spilling over into
www-html@w3.org). Also, Bert Bos and myself had a chance to get
together for some days, and we worked our way through much of the
material. As a result, there will be a major revision of the draft
specification within a week or two. It will include a formal
specification (courtesy of BB), and a much updated list of style

An upcoming debate is how well the CSS notation would fit into
an attribute:

  <H1 STYLE = "font.color=red">Headline</H1>

Comments welcome.
