It wasn't shown how the actual attributes for the example were applied. All that was shown was types of attributes, but not the actual attributes. I'd like to see the example in its entirety after the recommended improvements are applied (a beforeand after shot).

And the advantage is?

I'm sure I'm missing the point, but this looks a convoluted way to apply styling that XSL or CSS could handle faster (or more clearly to the uninitiated :-)).

Is it possible to use attributeGroup for a "higher" purpose? For example, could you useone attributeGroup for "normal" styling and a second, differently-styled, attributeGroup for (say) "This data is time-expired"?
