First things first: it appears that I have (again) presented my
opinions with far too little tact.  To anyone who has felt affronted by
my previous posts, I sincerely apologize for a tone that was probably
much too confrontational.  I think that the tenor of that response was
a result of being told "we already have a technology for that," when
I've suffered years of frustration from that technology.

Also, Len, you're right, Scarlett is "I'll worry tomorrow," and Blanche
is always depending on the kindness of strangers.  I suppose I'd get
myself in trouble if I said "Same ditz, different play," so I'd better
not say it.

With regard to the xslv proposal: feedback, both on the list and off,
seems to indicate that there's at least a modicum of interest in what
might be done in this fashion, but the consensus appears to be that the
CSS vocabulary ought to be used for it, rather than a new one (even if
the new one casts itself as a "rectification" of the old).  So I'm
going to revise what's there, moving the xcss appendix into the main
document, and letting the proposal for more ordered naming wither away,
just as the state has done.


My other self-appointed task for the week is to implement, using the
proposal, a style sheet both sufficiently useful and sufficiently
complex to show something approaching proof of concept.  I'll put up
another pointer as soon as that happens, but I have a day job.

However, any additional comments would be welcome.  Also, a thank you
to those who took the time to look at the proposal; analog shows enough
traffic to make taking it forward at least a little longer worthwhile.

A hundred thousand lemmings can't be wrong.
