	It should be possible to combine the two approaches. A default style
attribute can be specified in an XML DTD. When a style="x" or class="x"
attribute exists, locally applied style attributes should cascade onto the
attributes specified in the DTD, thus XSL can be used to apply style on a
tree location dependent fashion, either with the use of css:chunk or using
predefined styles in a external css sheet.
