Well, if you look at Netscape Navigator Ver. 4.00 to 4.05 (?)  or  
Internet Explorer 3.x, you will find out that for example the statement:

  H1 { background: black; color: white; textalign: center; }

will produce (the lines -| give the border of the area that is black, !  
is the border of the browser window or the enclosing element):

!      ---------        !
!    --|This is|---     !
!    |the headline|     !
!    --------------     !

instead of:

!-----------------------!
!|      This is        |!
!|    the headline     |!
!-----------------------!

which is more ugly than if the browser would not support CSS at all:

!                       !
! This is               !
! the headline          !
!                       !
