While we are on the subject of the upcoming CSS2 spec: I see that in
the new WD of 04.nov.97 the section on generated text is still
not written and that the section on cue-before/cue-after is still

You (the spec authors :) have earlier written that you are considering
these issues. Why did nothing happen? Is it because you hesitate to
extend the CSS model with properties that are allowed to insert text?
As far as I can see these issues are very important for XML,
accessibility and maintainability, so I'd very much like to hear the
rationale for not doing anything about them. (I don't doubt that there
is one, I'd just like to hear it.)

Is there still interest in further suggestions/discussions on this
