Re: [xml-dev] CSS does not use the XML syntax. Why not?

It would be easier to programmatically manipulate CSS with an XML
syntax... but it is easier for human beings to have a more condensed
syntax such as the one we know...

So, why not both ?!?

I, personally, would prefer a good editor with which I could type source
files with a human being syntax while a program could read them with an
XML parser.
