My take on this would be that it's all well and good doing a mock-up in
Photoshop (or whatever) *if* the person doing the design has at least
half an eye on how the design will translate into HTML. If this isn't
done, then you can easily end up with a PITA as has happened here.

Personally, I tend to start with a halfway-house package such as
Fireworks, and then tweak the HTML by hand.
