No, not all of them! C.f 'Usenet Newsgroups', 'Web Sites', etc.!

It is closed! It is a so called 'empty element'
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.6), which is closed by a trailing
'/' (after "intro").

Looking at debian.css, it seems as the 'a's in front of the
pseudo-classes 'link', 'visited', etc. have been removed. I don't know
if this is the prettiest solution though. I would really prefer the
soultion using [href] attribute matching, since this only matches
hypertext links.

Kind regards,
