Yes, try it out! I should also mention that it supports XML with
stylesheet linking, and has experimental support for:

  - the CSS3 namespace proposal [1]

  - WML, i.e. a pre-installed CSS style sheet is applied to incoming
    WML documents

  - Open eBook, i.e. a pre-installed CSS style sheet is applied to
    incoming OPF documents [3]

[2] http://www.openebook.org/

I'm working on documentation for these new features.

CSS3 is being worked on, and documents will follow. However, compared
to the major new functionality that entered CSS2, CSS3 will be smaller
-- more focused on modularizing existing functionality rather than
adding new.

As always, discussions in this group is helpful when moving CSS
