I enjoyed seeing many of you last night and especially enjoyed hanging 
out with some of you at Milltown. Eric Leary came again and Don Hopkins 
was a newcomer. Rob, Brad C, Hiawatha, Jim, and Edmund also were there.

I look forward to seeing y'all again next week for the Repoze party.

Last night's presentation is posted here:


Jim, to answer your question from last night, I was able today to put 
two action-server properties in one KSS rule and have it work. Two 
action-servers triggered two different callable methods, each method 
selecting a different set of DOM nodes to operate on. I passed a 
parameter to each of the actions, also. I even put an action-client in 
the same rule and all three actions worked off the same event trigger at 

So that is something a little different from CSS. I guess it is 
important to emphasize that KSS is has CSS-compliant *syntax* (but not 
the same execution).

What would be interesting is to have two actions in one rule, both 
manipulating the same DOM node, and see which one wins. It is reported 
that you can put the actions and parameters in the rule in any order. 
But I wonder if order has an effect on the sequence of actions triggered 
in the KSS engine on the client.
