Adam,

"3.3 Use style sheets to control layout and presentation. [Priority 2]"
sounds very definitive to me.  It does not say, Style Sheets may be used to
control layout and presentation."  Lets substititue words, "Use both hands
to control the saw" <smile>.  I can cut with wood with a saw using one hand,
but this wording does not give me an option to use one hand or HTML 4 done
properly.

Once more, I fear managers will read 3.3 literaly.  I know I do.

fully accessible, but it uses deprecated HTML elements to control the
appearance of the page. Here, CSS would be required. Or, simply strip out
the deprecated elements, and you're fine without CSS.

rob>if i strip out the out the deprecated elements, I am fine without CSS,
but then I did not use a style sheet.

thanks, rob
