But isn't it planned to add a "style' attribute
to all HTML elements?
so one could do this:
<P style="margin=5em"> Oh, happy blue dog </p>
<P style="margin=10em"> your ceasless wanderings inspire
and probably a lot more.

yeah, yeah, yeah. You're obviously not the person who is
going to have to install all of those plugins. I'm a
"tech support person" so I have a different perspective,
and I'd prefer to only setup one peice of software.
*ALSO*, have you ever offered both an HTML version of a
document, and a PDF version? People almost always go
for the HTML version.
