I have modified a little bit the stylesheet and added the example of 
Markup to make it even easier to use.

It's not a problem. I have explained it the Mockup document if you 
want to create a new class with a new category. The Style is not 
dependant on the name of the class but on the structure level except 
for TA which has a different backgroung color.

So use the class you need, I wanted to be easy for the editors :)

yes it's a good idea. Minimize the effort of Editors and if we do it 
really simple we will be able to share it with other people outside 
QA.

XSLT I would vote. it leads to a more consistent way of writing your 
code and so less possible mistake.
