He's asking, philosophically, "Why...?"
My example was not a "how do I" but more of a "yes you can". The point I was making was that it was not left out as such and that there were means available since css2 to do it :).
I agree that perhaps there could have been a more specific rule invented for this but the beauty of CSS is that there is nearly always a way to do something without having specific pre-built properties just built for one purpose.
There are many things I would like to see added to CSS but things that can be done already are not on my wish-list :)
