Well, it was, after all, my fault for not stating it properly.
I'm still in the position of wanting a single style sheet solution.
What's been misunderstood is that my concern is more of a political
one than a technical one. It seems acceptable to me that HTML has
a solution which isn't the general SGML solution. I see no real
flaw with this. But I worry as a developer that I may have to support
not one, but two different systems which will make my browser eat that
much more runtime memory.
