Subject: Re: SGML macros using DSSSL expressions

for an excellent working example of a macro language see www.aristosoft.com
personally i feel that the syntax of HTML was a key to the success of the web
and that the deviation into c-style syntax is the work of self serving programmers
who are paid too well to have the language remain simple.

microsofts use of font face and size...along with other simple tags are enough for
95% of the people.  We should focus on what the people and the industries want.

maybe i'm mad...but the CSS syntax is bad enough.
