Chris, can you clarify please: one beer to company, or one beer to every 
Is your offer valid for CSS3 as well?
(well, under CSS3  I mean here released modules covering Line-Text, BoxModel, 
Background, Color; and Positioning, Tables taken from CSS2)
There was no Ruby in CSS2, and I doubt implementing it makes sense for KHTML 
at a moment.  I have also too many complains on CSS3 UI module.

At a moment, I still have no final conclusion on Fonts module.
At a first glance, I was pleased to see 'hstem'/'vstem' in properties, but on 
another hand, this looks like too much internal / low-level font info.
Current Fonts module became, in terms of complexity, close to TrueType 
specification, and I am afraid that final WG recommendation can be (in terms 
of complexity/overhead) close to OpenType.
I doubt such complexity is really necessary. It would be nice to hear your 
opinion, though.
