But, the question is, what parsed representation does the OP need, and for what purpose?
I would need something like a hierarchical table in which I could lookup the specified CSS attributes and their values, so that I can extract them for specific elements and apply them in a non-HTML environment. It's for a customizable canvas-like drawing area.
If there currently are no parsers out there, I might have to accept my losses and go with something more limited and simplistic, and implement CSS parsing later on.--
