No disrespect to you personally intended. Only the idea. If you're
offended, I apologize.

It's not about some software spending some cycles. It's about access
barrier. Per the original idea, in order to write something like
Operator or Technorati's Microformats Search, I'll have to also write
a CSS parser and the DOM kidoodle that comes with the necessity to
resolve rules and apply propertie. Which quickly puts software
development like this out of reach for anybody but a browser vendor.

And you're mixing meaning into styling. How much worse could it get?
If I don't get it, educate me. Or ignore me. Ah, the beauty of the
email discussion.
