very much so....! "my" family of TEI stylesheets really badly

for example, I am very keen to refactor the stylesheets as much
as I can to make functionality more abstract. So instead of specifying
in 3 or 4 places what to do with <hi rend="bold"> and <hi rend="bo"> ,
I want to say once that these mean "make it bold", and implement
that concept for each output format.
as regards the HTML5 / microdata thing, I am making a start
on this now, and am getting stuff out which W3C validator
at least believes is HTML5, but its going to take a while :-}

follow the stuff on Subversion in SF)
