The Li Mu Bai of Cascading Style Sheets?

As previously mentioned, I'm a big fan of Eric Meyer's new book. I wrote a review on Amazon.com under the guise of Nutella Consumer (my penchant for Nutella is honored elsewhere), a part of which Eric really liked:

Last year, I watched "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and I was amazed at the swordsmanship on display. Swords were no longer weapons, but extensions of arms - as if they were new appendages grown especially for the task. Eric Meyer can wield CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) in just the same way as those actors could wield swords.

In his web log, Eric wonders which of the amazing characters I picture him as. Well, the most appropriate is probably Li Mu Bai, since he is clearly the master swordsman. But Eric is also very much the trailblazer, so I suspect there is a little bit of Jen Yu in him as well. Seriously though, Eric's understanding of CSS is legendary. His ability to disseminate that knowledge is masterful and he deserves to make pots of money from his book.
