Um, strictly speaking a markup scheme (such as ThML) is divorced from
presentational issues. Markup should identify document structure it
shouldn't deal with display at all. But then having been a member of
IEC/ISO TC1/SC18/WG8 at the time SGML was being standardised I have a very
dogmatic view of markup; generalised not procedural. Sadly after all our
efforts in WG8 to separate the two things the creators of HTML mixed them
up again. Duh!
