Good day to everybody

1. This is my very first e-mail to w3 mailing list. Please don't  
hesitate to tell me if I done something wrong.

2. Here are some suggestions for CSS

==========================
	a. I dont know if it apply to browsers or to spec, but double-italic  
(such as, a book's title in a quote) is not supported in neither  
Mozilla, Opera or Safari (latest Mac version of all)
	I wrote a page about that
<http://www.empyree.org/informatique/test-en.html#double-italic>

==========================
	b. a possibility to use any character as a bullet, for unordered list  
(it is already possible for pictures)
	list-style-type:<character>
Most custom-bullet are pictures of characters already available as a  
part of Unicode. I'm thinking of *check marks*.

Here's an example:
<http://www.empyree.org/informatique/test-en.html#list-style-type- 
character>

==========================
	c. relative colors

It is not possible by now. This site <http://www.espezon.org/> did a  
great job at simulating "color familes" (darker, lighter). It helps  
keeping consistencies.

 make it easy to have "location-based" link (anchor, in-site,  
out-site) *and* "situation-based" link (not visited, visited), without  
being cumbersome or unergonmic.

 Makes it easy to propose alternate stylesheet. Changing from green  
theme to yellow theme only requires to change *one value*

 Proposal : <bace color> ( la base href)

==========================
	d. base mesure
 Reduce code :
						margin:1.5em 1.5em 1.5em 1em => margin:1.5 1.5 1.5 1

 Still possible to add "non-base" value, even in the same style:
						margin:1.5 1.5 1.5 1px

 Proposal : <bace mesure> ( la base href)

==========================
	e. 2-bit color: support for color:#0, #1, #2, ... #e #f. Even less  
code (yes may be a gadget but it cost nothing and is clean.
