It would be nice if instead of three separate attributes width, min-width,
max-width we represent
'width' as an aggregate or structure:

width: 100px; /* old style */
width: 50% (min:20px, max:100px)

This will solve independent cascading issues mentioned in my previous
posting.

The same approach could be used for 'display':

display: block(position:float-left)
display: block(position:absolute, top:10px, ... )
display: inline;

Just to avoid mutualy exclusive attribute values.

That are only dreams of course.
