I have suggested it before, for just this purpose, but hadn't
realised (no, hadn't connected my 'other' use of it as you say).

How much of a chore would it be to have it parameterised?


Would that make sense? Then Geert and I could colour our program listings
or define our stylesheets based on element names, but not both...
which would break the rest of our css stylesheets :-) Mmmm.
Now I see the problem.

My only other suggestion would be for me to learn more about CSS I suppose.
Isn't it possible to specify the hierarchy (selectors in css2) such that
its possible to identify the two uses and hence style them differently?
