Why would you want to define how data is *presented* in the a markup 
language that should just be preoccupied with semantics and *content*? 
If anything, this sort of thing should be handled via CSS or similar.
If your intention is to inject visual/presentational elements back into 
HTML, then this is the wrong list to propose this anyway, I think...
