Historical Style Sheet proposals

During the history of the Web there were a number of style sheet proposals before CSS, and this page links to most of them. The proposals are roughly in chronological order. They contain ideas that current specifications build upon, and serve as background material.

Several of the above proposals were presented at a W3C workshop on style sheets in Paris Nov 6-7 1995. The notes are available.
