Hi Sandro,

I'm not necessarily suggesting we attempt to translate standard CSS style 
properties to Pivot skin properties.  I think that's something that has to 
fall out of a prototype implementation.  I am suggesting we use and 
support a subset of the CSS syntax for documents, selectors, properties, 

I am working on a prototype, though I'm not sure when I'll make it public. 
Again, it depends on how it goes.... :)
