I'm currently revamping the CSS Properties panel of BlueGriffon: in the current version, each property requires some XUL (sometimes a lot of XUL), code to update that XUL when the selection changes in the editor, and code to update the CSS OM when the property's value is changed by the user.
But all of that could be, in most cases, automated nicely since we could deal directly with the CSS grammar for the property. I started writing some code about it last week and it mostly works. Modifying an existing property or adding a new property to the CSS Properties panel will become far easier than what it is today. Properties accepting multiple values will need extra work but in the long run, I think 90% or more of the CSS Properties panel will be based on the new XBL bindings, drastically simplifying maintenance.
You can see below an example of the XUL code and the resulting UI (this is real, not a mockup):

I am in the process of updating BlueGriffon against mozilla-central's trunk. This is a huge effort, but you can already build a branch from github. Please note, this is a work in progress, and I am working primarily on MacOS X so this remains untested on Windows and Linux for the time being. You'll find build instructions in the github readme.

I am extremely glad to report that BlueGriffon became two days ago the very first Wysiwyg web editor able to edit a document in « Print » mode, i.e. as if the medium was
screen. It means the print stylesheets are applied and the screen ones are not. You can then finely tune your document for print using the Style Properties panel that will output
@media print rules when necessary, an unprecedented feature in the world of Wysiwyg web editors

Fixing a bug in cssproperties.js yesterday, I suddenly had an idea. Six hours of work later, I have a screencast to show you
So I started a while ago looking at the OpenOfficeXML specification (5000+ pages...) and, given the very low quality of the HTML export of Microsoft Word, decided to write some code to convert OOXML documents into clean HTML+CSS documents. It's far from ready but the basic architecture for my converter is now done and it already works for trivial documents. When it's ready (this is not for tomorrow, it's going to take some time...), the code will be integrated into BlueGriffon EPUB Edition and sold as an add-on to BlueGriffon.
Here is a little video I just made, you can also watch it on YouTube directly.

Here's the changelog for 1.4 from 1.3.1, the important items show a disc instead of an empty circle:
bluegriffon.defaults.forceLFto force saving documents into Unix mode (carriage returns are one LF). To enable that, open the Preferences, select the Advanced panel and open the configuration editor. Right-click in the main area and select New > Boolean. Enter the name of the new preference and set it to
true. To revert to the original platform-dependant behaviour, reset the property or turn it to
false. UI for this will be added for v1.5.
