CSS is: a) a standard (in as much as anything W3C is a standard) b) still in continuing development, according to various sources on XSL-list and www-styles It's entirely possible that CSS is dead and XSL is the only road forward for XML, but if that's so, the W3C is being awfully quiet about it. All that business about them 'not competing', etc. And CSS is quite definitely for XML as well as HTML - the styles area at the W3C and the CSS2 Rec make that _very_ clear.
