CSS Support -- can I encourage it?

Asked by Zearin

I've read the page on the work-in-progress feature of CSS support:

http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/CSS_Support#Current_State

I don't know C or C++ (learning slowly :), and I can understand existing Python although I don't know it well enough to write it. I really want this feature badly, but I don't have the skill to do much about it…

Is there anything I can do to encourage this feature? I'm quite comfy with CSS in an XHTML context, and after a quick glance at the CSS spec for SVG, it looks perfectly understandable to me. So I may not be able to implement, but I'd be happy to test CSS support and report my results.

If it helps make a decision, I would like to vote “me too” on the greater desire for external stylesheet support. That would allow editors with a lot of handy things that Inkscape's XML editor does not currently have (syntax checking, color coding), and promote greater reuse of stylesheets as well.

Search bugs, blueprints for existing information. Also come to IRC #inkscape @ freenode.net and ask if someone can point you to right files and say what you could do.

Can you help with this problem?
