No, it means that I would try to make sure that the user in Africa, who
doesn't want to download a 15MB Netscape upgrade because he is on a 14.4
connection, can still view the content without downloading a heavy CSS file.

That way, I download a site styled with CSS2 over a T1 to my new Mac, while
he (or she) gets a simple text site. All with the power of common code.
