The 'lame idiosyncrasies' being:

a) you not liking 'color'  as a keyword
b) you trying to use the 'align' keyword, that doesn't exist
c) you saying that you don't like 'float' as a keyword (it's indeed 
quite more logical than 'trainwreck' even for my rather poor english 
d) you having some legitimate but arguable points of view about the box 

 I'm sure valid points can be made against the CSS specs, let's hope 
they are not so weak and futile as these.
