What CSS1 Covers
The goals of CSS Level 1 were ambitious - to divorce, as much as possible, the rendering information from structured documents. This would lead to documents that were device independent - a goal for long-term maintainability. The focus of CSS1 is mainly on the visual medium of presenting HTML documents (controlling text content appearance characteristics such as color, font, spacing and surrounding boundary effects.) which is clearly the current dominant need for CSS.
