I don't know that this follows. If you look at the JSSS stuff, it
is essentially (I'm sure someone at Netscape will correct this if
matching rules. So I don't see an advantage there.
For DSSSL it would seem that for the most part, CSS has attempted
to remain in line with the properties available from DSSSL. Most
of the rest of the reason for using DSSSL, which is considerable,
is due to the ability to manipulate the document tree and perform
more programmatic manipulations. It would seem to me that these
manipulations cannot be profitably performed on individual elements
So what remains for both JSSS and DSSSL once you remove the
programmatic nature, as I believe you must to process per-element
style declarations, is essentially the same as CSS.
