It is not an either-or situation.  I routinely write CSS into documents
using xslt, getting the best of both.  The CSS is essentially just a block
of CDATA, so there are no problems for the xslt processor.  I sometimes
develop the CSS on a mock up, them paste it into the xslt stylesheet.  And,
of course, you can keep the css in a separate file and just import it into
the document.
