I think you are missing the point of separating content from
presentation. We should not try to "fix" the SGML tools, we
should provide the content, not force everybody to use our
colour scheme. Any site that cares about this thing will probably
have a customized default.dsl which integrates with _their_
site, not our idea how things should look. And that customized
default.dsl will either hadcode the colors, or use a CSS,
it's their business, not ours.
