I'm a little bit puzzled about Microsoft's patent. I thought it
specifically covered stylesheets applied to documents where the styles
were applied to regions on the layout, not to parts of the text. But
CSS stylesheets are applied to parts of the text, right? Such
stylesheets have been around for decades, right? Yet Microsoft,
reportedly the W3C, and all the members of the press are talking as if
Microsoft's patents covered CSS.

BTW, fork@kragen.dnaco.net is down for the time being; something weird
happened on Tuesday, which means incoming mail sometimes works OK (when
I can get PPP to work), but outgoing mail is broken. kragen.dnaco.net
may end up being reconstructed from the ground up.

Techno addiction. More expensive than crack, keeps you up longer than
coke, makes you fatter than pot, but hey... it's legal.
