Hello all

Something caught my eye when I was investigating resolutions for the 

"...Any style sheet language may be used with HTML. A simple style sheet 
language may suffice for the needs of most users, but other languages 
may be more suited to highly specialized needs..."[1]

[1] http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/present/styles.html#h-14.2

If any style sheet language can be used, why don't microformats create 
their own style language eg:

<span class="bday" style="bday.1968-01-04">4th Jan, 1968</span>

or something similar, parsers can just as easily determine values from 
@style as they can any other property.
