i fail to see the insults in my accounting of (imo) weak and futile 
points against CSS as, well,  weak and futile. I sincerely think i 
haven't made any ad hominem attack and i am extremely sorry if you felt 
that way.

That said, ranting about how you don't have time to waste learning CSS  
or how the W3C is insulting your intelligence by choosing keywords that 
you happen not to like do not seem, and will never seem, reasonable 
arguments to me.

Now, for my very first tip
