	I don't understand, but widths are outside the
	scope of HTML.  Note:  only elements appear on the
	page, not tags.

	[DJW:]  
	Which object?   In general there are already 
	facilities to change colours, but they are 
	outside the scope of HTML and covered by the
	CSS color and background-color attributes, as
	well as the equivalents in other style sheet
	languages.  Any further discussion of this 
	should be on www-style@w3.org (after confirming
	that you want more than what is already there).

	[DJW:]  This is probably outside the scope of 
	HTML as it can almost certainly be achieved using
	the document object model.  It might be considered
	part of the browser object model, and outside the
	scope of W3C entirely.

	However, scripting is already the cause of security
	problems.  Any such proposal for the document object
	model would need to contain a detailed security analysis.
