    Probably something about extended style sheets that include typographic
    system tagging. Ideally, as a typographer, I would like something like CSS
    that includes a tag for every registered OpenType Layout feature -- and OT
    'language system' tagging that sits below the level of document language
    tagging etc. --, so that I can create sophisticated online documents with
    the same level of typographic control as I have for print documents. I
    realise that it may be necessary to dress this up as a higher level,
    non-proprietory-technology-specific mark up.
