Aha, its a >blockquote". Agreed - this is truly a revolution, and one of the strongest reasons I use to sell Web designers on using XML. A CSS style sheet can define XML presentation far more easily and completely that it ever could define it for HTML, avoiding the hangover of HTML's formatting. If the browser (and other application) vendors could get their CSS act together, I think we might well see the style sheet revolution finally come to pass. Not because the style sheet language has changed, but because the data on which it operates is much more tractable. XSL, of course, receives this benefit as well. I just wish the XSL cheerleaders would avoid the temptation to tar CSS with HTML's sins.
