>To be precise, "." is defined for any language which explicitly states

>includes, to the best of my knowlegde, HTML, XHTML, SVG, MathML, and XUL.

Then there appears to be an error in the CSS 2 spec that the CSS 2.1
revision has missed; see:
     http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/selector.html#q1
          (the next-to-last line in the table)
and:
     http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/selector.html#class-html
which say this applies only to HTML.
