OK, you caught me.  How about, I don't know where I read it, but I got
the impression that CSS is typically better.

Correct me if I'm wrong..., but if you use HTML don't you have to use it
on individual items?  Where as, if you use CSS you can take a whole
group, say the <paragraph> element, and make everything within that
element, for example, "bold", rather than go through each paragraph and
put <b> </b> tags around it.   

Or maybe, it's just because I don't think .NET allows you to do it the
way he wanted to do it with HTML using XML.  I've don't remember seeing
anything like <b><paragraph></paragraph></b> in the .NET code I've read.
But maybe I missed it.
