The simple semantic html markup can be displayed on just about device.
The goal is to strip out presentational markup (like table layouts)
and move them into css. Performance is boosted because css is cached,
and your pages don't have to download huge table structures, greatly
reducing bandwidth and increasing page rendering.

Not sure about this one...it may be difficult for someone of poor site
to see the effects of css.
