Behavioral Extensions to CSS (http://www.w3.org/TR/becss) - look like
it oldest (4 Aug 1999) working draft on W3C :) is BE2CSS dropped by
W3C or just moved to something more acceptable (XForms? XMLEvents?
XQuery)?.. but look like  it mostly for "data interaction" and too
complex for so called "presentational interaction" (when you not
change any data, but change it presentation)... in any case - it will
be better to publish some info about the future of BE2CSS - in case if
future not bright - which technologies will substitute it?.. i am
looking for "workhorse-technology" for separating interaction (look
like we must separate also data interaction from  presentation
interaction) and already separated data&presentation. Maybe we  will
see soon W3C version of AJAX?.. :) AJAX lack support for old browsers
(not so bad) and also lack support for search engines (very bad) and i
need to have some preferable XML-based  "interactions definitions"
that can be easy processed by "thick" client (after converting to
javascript or BE2CSS), or fully processed by server for "thin" client
(script-free XHTML)

truly yours,
Slav

p.s. also i have one question - parametrized links under wardship of
XLink or it already belong to XForms? parametrized links look too
complex for XLink but too simple for XForms (is here something
middle?)
