That's for sure. The point is: it that just syntax?
That is, if had
binding: url('http://example.org/template-generator?"aaa" / 5em "b@c"
/ auto "ddc" / 3em');
(with the appropriate script at example.org generating the XBL binding)
would it have been the same?
Note that the syntax is that of current css3-layout.
