I was just sitting there thinking about min-height and max-height, and I 
was thinking:  why not have a syntax for unit ranges?  Maybe something 
like this:

height: range(18px,30em) - No smaller than 18px, no larger than 30em.
height: range(18px) - No smaller than 18px.
height: range(,30em) - No larger than 30em.

The syntax is the same as the one used in regular expression syntax, but 
I think it'd work here.  Anyone got any suggestions/ideas?
