I thought I had some objections to the style-sheets proposed.  I've
sat down and tried to think of some, and besides my vague discomfort
with (a) the fact that presentation won't be completely eliminated
from the HTML+ dtd and (b) the added complexity of converting the DTD
*and* the style-sheet, I couldn't really come up with anything.

I guess I support the style-sheet proposal, but would rather have had
my way :)
