Hmmm, that's odd.  I was replying to someone, and it just didn't show up
as such.  Ach, well.

For confusing you, and then adding to my sinful ways by replying to this
post, I guess I owe a tip.

<tip type="authoring techniques" author="Mark Gallagher">
One technique I've found very useful in recent times is to completely
ignore anything remotely connected to the design of my pages when I'm
first writing them.  Write the content, marking it up as appropriate,
and only *then* begin to worry about what should go into your stylesheet.

It's a great way to make sure you're concentrating on what the content
will be, and having properly structured markup.
