I'm in the middle of evacuating from CERN to INRIA, and time to play
with style sheets is limited. However, I've made a new version of the
draft specification I'm working on available [1]. This mailing list
has been an inspiration while editing, thanks! Also, a new version of
Arena (0.97g) which implements several of the new features is
available [2].

Among the changes in the document:

- The applicability of the style sheet language to other DTDs than
HTML is supported in principle

- A way for the user to set style properties outside of HTML (or
SGML) is proposed, e.g.:

$HTML-SOURCE: font.family = courier; font.size = 12pt;

- A box-oriented formatting model is suggested

- small-caps/big-caps issues are discussed in more detail

Comments welcome.
