That's a good point. Given a large document structure, anyone who is
relatively well versed in things computerish can write a script to create a
stylesheet and add relevant CLASS attributes to his HTML files. All that
stuff about site-wide updates can happen on the server side. Personally, I'm
against REs. I do most of my site-wide processing on the server side ANYWAY
(I'm in favour of seperate NS4/IE4 pages for all documents, but I don't
WRITE them, I GENERATE them).
