>     Abstract:
> 
>     This CSS Namespaces module defines the syntax for using namespaces
>     in CSS. It defines the @namespace rule for declaring the default
>     namespace and binding namespaces to namespace prefixes, 
> and it also
>     defines a syntax that other specifications can adopt for 
> using those
>     prefixes in namespace-qualified names. 
> 
> The module is required to make Selectors usuable in CSS. 
> Selectors can 
> select elements by their namespaces, but doesn't define how 
> namespaces 
> are declared. In CSS, those declarations will be done with the syntax 
> of this module, but other systems (e.g., XBL2) use their own 
> syntax to 
> declare namespaces for use with Selectors.
