I was going to say that to Martin, actually. we should have more examples
of rendition, perhaps. My view was simply that if a name exists in the CSS
vocabulary, lets use it.

but that comes back to the points that

  a) most of our markup is NOT cited from other projects (it would however
be no bad thing to have more extended examples which _were_ so

  b) the average reader (ie "people like us", say Martin and Sebastian)
does not grok this sublety, cos we have no visible notation to
indicate it.
