Yes, I can remember that argument. Apparently, it doesn't seem to stop
others from trying, my most recent finding being weasyprint.org.

BTW, it's interesting to see how CSS usage among webdesigners is mor-
phing slowly (via tools like Sass for Sassy CSS, or short SCSS, see
sass-lang.com) into something more programming language-like, with
variables, functions, mixins, nesting, etc. These guys seem to move
into the right direction.
