No! The essentail point of these tiny change as you call it, is that this
tiny change will take more then to browser generations to be a standard, so
that means that it will take more then to years to be a commen standard.

This means that we will have another element in the html code, insted of
just using the CSS standard as it is... the hole idea of having layout
elements in the HTML code is more then irretating. The way I see the future
is a webconcept with script, data, and layout in defrient dokuments... we
are not talking about a tiny change, but a solution for a bether web
development language.

  It does?  I'm looking at my DHTML book now and I don't see anything
obvious.

  Well I hate to be the voice in the wilderness, but I think the vast
majority of page authors don't really care to do this.  This is essentially
a *tiny* change that adds value, and just because it's not in tune with this
month's flavour of "the way the web should work" doesn't seem like enough
justification to not add it.
