Yes - good idea.

Publishers? Some newspapers may come on-line soon, I know some are
thinking about it. Newspapers represent a particular type of presentation
with headlines, bylines, editorials and images. The style of these, as
anyone who is fond of one particular paper will agree, is important. It
isn't just readability - its almost cultural.

Navigability is still the most important issue but it's a technical issue -
finding information in cyberplace is extremely difficult without aids but
presentational issues will not go away.

Perhaps the two are not mutually distinct - the "feel" of a document can be
a pointer to its general content?
