Hi Tantek, and thanks. I seemed sensible to me for such mnemonics to be
available, though I personally hardly ever use them, though how I prefer to
work isn't neccessarily how others might work. :)

Look forward  to the day browser vendors start supporting the specification
as and when it (CSS3) becomes a W3 recommendation, though I know Mozilla
does have provisional support for some CSS3.

Regards

Jonathan
