I haven't followed development/the Bugtracker lately, but in case this hasn't been mentioned yet (a quick search didn't pull up any results), there is a large number of instances (in index.css) where the shorthand notation for these properties could be simplified. For example:

   margin: 0.75em 0 0.5em 0;

could be simplified to:

   margin: 0.75em 0 0.5em;

Also, a decision should probably be made regarding the notation of decimal length values between zero and one, so you avoid mixing the notations with the zero included and omitted.

Here's an example where the leading (superfluous) zero has been omitted:

   margin-top: .5em;

Thank you for the ideas. I think they may be worth looking into, time permitting. We are a bit constrained on that one. :)
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done... until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

Sorry for necro-posting but I am moving this as I know Antechinus and others are keeping this in mind when they make CSS changes.

Thanks, Sverre
