But the browser designers (should) have done that for the default style
sheet. The flaw in your tactic is that you need to be as exhaustive as the
browser (and HTML) creators. Otherwise, the stuff you missed looks bad, as
we discovered with TABLE and DL. We should go for a minimal-transformation
approach, not an obliterate-then-rebuild one.

It should have been within the "content" section (unless I messed up the
nesting for the original file).
