As a background, I'm a certified Master CSS2 programmer who has been
espousing non-pixel perfect usable designs for a long time.

CSS still stinks.

And it while the support of browser vendors hurts, it's not what I'm talking
about.

I'm talking about the pains it takes to setup a multi-column layout.
I'm talking about poor naming of elements.
I'm talking about implicit interactions between properties that authors
still have to learn.
I'm talking about thge lack of user constants, a simple construct with no
cascading technical issues.
I'm talking about the absurdity that are the display models (box, inline,
replaced, table, list)  Some are good, most are bad (especially table).
I'm talking about the lack of critical features for even non pixel-perfect
layouts (text wrapping).
I'm talking about the inability to specify clearly that one element is
relative to another independant of the relationship in code.
I'm talking about the claim that CSS works with many languages (as long as
they're tree-based and called HTML or XML).
I'm talking about the non-modularity (only recently addressed) of CSS and
the total lack of extension mechanism including those things that would
allow for other languages to be styled.
I'm talking about all the little annoyances that come about any time I've
ever tried to code up a CSS page.
