My idea seemed radical enough to have a good chance of being original, and I 
didn't want to read the CSS specs (or even that one page you linked to) to 
confirm that. I'll try not to pollute this list with too many of my ideas 
unless I'm reasonably sure they're unique and worth while.

I realize my example wasn't very clear. I was hoping my verbal description 
was better. I guess I was hoping people would read my mind just a little 
bit.

That resolution just has to be an estimation. In my example I use "loc: 
100,200,150,250" which represents the upper left and lower right coordinates 
of the area to be scanned for the content described in the value of "find."
