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.

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