This is the CSS WG's response to an issue you raised on the last CSS
2.1 draft (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915). We want to
publish CSS 2.1 as a CR in about two weeks. Please let us know this
week if you think our response is wrong.

Your e-mail:
    ID Selectors
    S5.9 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915/selector.html#class-html>:
    # Document languages may contain attributes that are declared to be of
    # type ID. What makes attributes of type ID special is that no two
    # such attributes can have the same value; whatever the document
    # language, an ID attribute can be used to uniquely identify its
    # element...
    Since CSS could conceivably be used for a non-SGML-based document
    language, I suggest defining IDs as "unique identifiers" first and
    relating them to type ID later. Another advantage is that you start
    the definition with generic English rather than specific code.

CSS WG response:
    Not a problem currently. Will fix it in Selectors when it
    is a problem.

For the CSS WG,
