>From a brief inspection there is a close correlation between Nick's
attributes and the equivalent SVG style elements (Osmarender can do
both SVG styles and CSS) so it shuld be possible to convert from one
to the other.  If the notation can be made more similar where possible
then that would help the people who have to use this stuff.
