[Håkon Lie:]

| By setting properties from a scripting language, you can dynamically
| modify property values. The downside is that your document may be less
| interoperable: they require browser support for both the CSS
| properties and the scripting language of your choice.
| 
| A good solution to this is to encode your static property values (most
| of them are static) in CSS and use a scripting language for the
| dynamic parts.

An alternative solution is to use a standard stylesheet language that
was designed for programming in the first place.
