same here, but I don't really see the advantage in css styling in that
case. Except for those features that are only available in CSS
rather than native html/svg. In the case of FO  there are no such
features as it's a superset of CSS rendering model (I think?).

Why is it easier to generate class="foo" in the XSLT together with
some css styling for .foo than to generate that set of attributes
directly in the XSLT using an attribute set or variable containing a set
of attribute nodes? I don't understand.
