>Do we have a rough consensus for draft-ietf-html-style-01.txt yet?
No. There was a great deal of unfavorable comment on the proposal
to put style info in attributes, such as

described in that draft). I don't know of anyone who was opposed
to this proposal who was convinced by the ensuing discussion.
I strongly urge that this Very Bad Idea be removed so that we may
have proper separation of style info from document markup. I am
most puzzled by
>while for short lived material
the ability to place rendering instructions within documents has
also been proven in the market place.
