Matthew and I started experimenting a little with using more of CSS in 
the main display panes of xiphos. The idea being to get a) more display 
design going with less effort and b) making it - potentially - possible 
for module writers to supply along with their module a style sheet how 
they wished to see certain elements expressed.

This is all experimental work and might never come to anything, but 
given that nearly all frontends of importance use a HTML renderer with 
CSS capability we thought this something we should aat least explore
