My extra penny is that I am in exactly the same boat as Frank. A
well-implemented content property would be very useful.

On another subject that I posted a message asking about a couple of
weeks ago, the "transparent" property is defined, but I wonder if
a "bleed" property might also be defined? What I mean is, if
I place an image in a block, I have found some cases where I would
like the image to translucently bleed over the edges a bit so as to 
mesh less harshly with a graphic in a neighboring block. Kind of a
fade-in, fade-out effect. Has any such property been defined? Is one
under consideration? Or is there some better way to do this that
I'm just missing?

Thanks,

Rick Johnson
