Rats. More rough surfaces where languages collide, therefore, more ecological pressure to accept the domination of a single object framework. Now that I've had a day to study the CSS2 visual rendering model, I have to go back to the sparse VML docs and see how much of it applies. Thanks for the heads up. If it weren't for maintenance, I'd draw these bloody things in Paint and walk away. On the other hand, maintenance/lifecycle is the one compelling argument for document databases. len From: Robin Berjon [mailto:robin.berjon@e...] Bullard, Claude L (Len) wrote: > BTW: because it started the thread(s), > I can see how one could dispose of HTML > and not miss it, but I can't think of why > one wouldn't keep CSS.

SVG doesn't use all the box model (which is indeed very nice for the sort of document that it's aimed at).
