Hello you all!

	This is my first post to the list, so please understand if is obvious or 
off topic.

	CSS are our long awaited solution.
	It provides great control, is flexible, and it doesnt break o obstruct 
correct markup.

	But -there is always is a "but"- there is almost no widespread support in the 
browsers market, yet.

	The problem is: no doubt we'll be using CSS tomorrow, but how can we work 
today? Clients dont understand "It's not as you are looking at it now, just 
wait until the new netscape navigator or ie version and you'll see."
	How can we maintain correct markup, good layout and design and 
compatibility so we dont have to re-mark everything when CSS became a 
standard?
	Examples? The tipical solution for small-capitals, document color 
managment in general and image/text control and layout in particular.

	We can discuss it or in case you think that it would be useful, you can
send me the answers and I'll post the summary.

	Thanks in advance...
