Note, however, that your style sheets will become significantly longer if you abolish shorthand properties. E.g., this declaration: border: thick solid red; is expanded into: border-top-width: thick; border-right-width: thick; border-bottom-width: thick; border-left-width: thick; border-top-style: solid; border-right-style: red; border-bottom-style: red; border-left-style: red; border-top-color: red; border-right-color: red; border-bottom-color: red; border-left-color: red; Regards, -h&kon Chief Technology Officer Opera Software Håkon Wium Lie http://www.opera.com/people/howcome howcome@xxxxxxxxx gets you there faster XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
