Probably something about extended style sheets that include typographic 
system tagging. Ideally, as a typographer, I would like something like CSS 
that includes a tag for every registered OpenType Layout feature -- and OT 
'language system' tagging that sits below the level of document language 
tagging etc. --, so that I can create sophisticated online documents with 
the same level of typographic control as I have for print documents. I 
realise that it may be necessary to dress this up as a higher level, 
non-proprietory-technology-specific mark up.
