That would be good, indeed. The Paged Media module is high on our list 
of priorities, because the XHTML Print profile[1] is waiting for it. We 
don't have a test suite yet, but we believe we have one implementation 
already[3]. The sooner we get a second one, the sooner the Paged Media 
module will be a Recommendation.

Håkon and I already used HTML+CSS and the properties for Paged Media 
when making camera-ready copy for our book[2]. It's not a complete 
replacement for TeX yet, but it already creates acceptable books.
