Great to see all the "This screenshot from Gecko because IE didn't do this, didn't do that..." hey?

However, when it comes to dynamic properties, why can't we do this on Mozilla? Sure, behaviors are a M$ wank, but dynamic properties are a natural addition... ( okay, so they're not in the spec, I'm sorry ;) )

In fact, I was showing one of my friends the benefits of DHTML and some of the cool stuff you could do and he just said: "Why can't you put all those table cell efects and code into the style, then you'd only have to write it once. I mean - isn't writing it once and using it everywhere a good thing?"

Ah... from the mouths of babes.
