Interesting idea. Perhaps we should apply the same principle to all 
these boring 2- and 3-column layouts. Let's just apply a consistent set 
of ID and class attributes to otherwise unstyled markup, and let the 
user apply their own stylesheet to every site we build...

No more CSS = no more arguing over liquid vs fixed designs - no more 
accessibility issues... Web design will be fun again, and we can all go 
to the beach instead. Hurrah!

No, but wait... What's that you're saying? CSS works like that anyway? 
If someone wanted to see their own font instead of mine, they can do 
this whether or not I specify a style sheet?

Aw nuts. Back to work, then.
