Hi Everyone,
I have come up with a few ideas for the plighted ACSS module of CSS3. If
ACSS falls through, then they could be implemented elsewhere...let me know
if anybody thinks they are valid ideas.

Note that all of these are in addition to the document at
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS-access.

A negotiation thing (for navbar) (skip?)
Allows uses to skip certain content of a document that may be repeated a
lot:
.navbar { skip: url(#content); }

An "else" descriptor
A kind of alternative attribute but for CSS. Allows UAs that don't support a
specific CSS property to take on an alternative:
p { color: #803050, else(volume: 120%;); }

Style style?
style, link, *[style], *[class] { applies-after: 6secs; apply: global; }

Alternate placement/content etc.
@media aural {
h1 { alt: url(heading1.wav) }
}

A :relates pseudo element
Spacer
anim:freeze

Kindest Regards,
