The CSS2 proposal mentions XML (thank goodness) several times,
and even CSS1 had the capability to specify in-line and block
styles, and list and list item styles for arbitary XML elements.
When I saw that CSS2 had additional features for handling tables,
I immediately thought there would be property types for use with
XML. Maybe they are there, and I cannot find them. If not, can
they be added to the Display property, as in 'table',
'head-row', body-row' and 'cell' shown below:
block | inline | list-item | run-in | compact |
none | table | head-row | body-row | cell
If something like this is not done, I fear that rendering XML
tables will only be achievable if HTML element names are used, or
some other nasty technique is adopted.
