|   Here's how I remember the discussion to allow underscores:
|
[...]
|   But since then XML has been developed, and XML *does* allow the
|   underscore.
|
|   The WG discussed it last summer, and decided to make it an erratum,
|   since the developers in the WG that didn't allow underscore in their
|   programs had no objection to changing their code, since it was
|   unlikely to break any existing style sheets, and since it made styling
|   XML-based formats easier.

short note: CSS validator still complains (October 23, 2001) on underscores 
in class names.
In fact, it says that this is an Error in stylesheet.
Can somebody fix this, please?
