The problem with this is that you can't select an element based on the 
value of another property.  There are many reasons for this, but, for 
example, what happens when one does this:

#companyname:font-family-fail(2) {
     font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;

Does the pseuso-class still match when the system has Times New Roman
