Wouldn't it be nice if there were a mechanism built into CSS where one could
use "entities", like in XML?

This would be helpful when building large stylesheets that have repetitive
information.  For instance, if you used a certain color many times in many
different rule sets, it would be useful to give it a name, like "mycolor",
so you could just say "color: &mycolor;" instead of having to use the
literal color value every timie..

Just a thought....
