Today's complaint is minor, but starting in 1997, I reported Macintosh
illegibility problems in XML1, CSS2, WAI (WCGL1), and HTML4 documents
upon their release. Maybe the W3C Webmaster or CSS authors would
consider freezing a Technical Reports stylesheet which is known to work
around existing UAs, and QA it each time new UAs are released. TRs are
coming out faster than UAs, and must reach the widest-possible audience.
