There are two aspects for this. You can create a CSS stylesheet 
with any CSS constructs you like. There is help for CSS1, and an 
extension mechanism to allow you to add CSS2 (or 3, or any 

Then there's the formatting engine, or what parts of the CSS 
stylesheet will actually affect the display in XMetaL. The support 
here is more limited. A lot of CSS 1 is covered. Some of CSS 2 
(particularly things that we thought were necessary for XML 
support) is covered. We concentrated on those things we thought 
would help people create XML documents. XMetaL 2 supports 
more CSS than XMetaL 1, and I'm only too happy to hear priority 
lists for adding more CSS support to future versions of the XMetaL 
formatting engine - sending me private email is probably better to 
avoid clogging up this list too much.
