in many ways, I agree, it's a really great thing. but a disaster
in other ways, because of the inconsistency of the implementations.

golly, I could complain if you like! the fact that its tied
to HTML behaviours, the lack of power of its selectors compared
to XPATH, it's lack of knowledge of namespaces, and it's lack
of variables or macros? havent you ever wanted to define "Oxford Blue"
as a colour and use it throughout?
it's mostly the bad implementations that make it _such_ a pain,
but obviously we can't do without it.
