Hallo,

Some time ago, i tried to start a thread on what i called "css templates". I there
something like this under consideration?
The idea is very simple and intents to save css authors from the grouping nightmare, while
it would be a means for clearer and reusable code.
For example: use a class as a template
<style>
/* Define a class to be used as a template:*/

.template1{
border:2px solid red;
height:100%;
}

/*use the template in a class:*/

table{
template: .template1;
border-color:blue;
}

/*as you can see above, border blue should prevail over the templates suggestion*/

/*One thing that would be great is the ability to use templates from other stylesheets:*/

.linkbox{
template: .template1 url( styles/templates.css );
border-color:blue;
}

</style>

Regards,

Manos Batsis

A new version of the draft "CSS3 introduction" has been published:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-css3-roadmap-20010119/

It contains a short description of each of the planned modules of
CSS3. The working group intends to update this document regularly to
keep track of the status of each module.

Comments welcome.
