Daniel, one of the purposes of XML and XSLT is to seperate the content from
the way it is displayed.

To use depreciated font elements sort of defeats the way mark-up has been

And check again on font support in Netscape. Font-family and font-size are
fully supported in Netscape 4.x and above, and many additional features are
available which font tags can't support. [Core CSS, Schengil-Roberts, 2000]

Even properties which have a "partial" rating - ie font-style, are classed
so because of some small variation from the spec. (oblique should be
available as well as italic in the case of font-style - but show me the font
tag for oblique ;) )

Happy coding,
Tim Watts

And I just love those font tags. I even use upper case HTML tags!!! hah hah.
If I removed my font tags, I'd have to use that terribly unreliable css :-)
There are users out there still using Netscape you know.

(by the way are you sure you really want to polute your generated HTML
with all those <font> elements, they are deprecated in HTML4 and XHTML)
