Correct. 0.98 (which is now available for major platforms) still use
the CSS draft 3 syntax. We're in the process of generating a draft 5
parser based on the yacc/lex specification which will be included
there. The draft 5 spec should be out within a week. In addition to
changes based on discussions on this list we plan one important change
in syntax:

H1 { font-family: helvetica }

Using a colon instead of an equal sign will often save one byte, looks
better on the screen (?) and conveys better that the assignement may
not be granted. Correspondingly, assignments will be renamed
"declarations" in draft 5. Comments?
