	Inline style encourages documents in which the only
	structural elements are span and div.  On the other
	hand, the genie has been let out of the bottle, and
	I cannot see any commercial browser supplier ever
	removing inline styling, because of its WYSISYG
	"benefits", and if it were removed from browsers, I
	can't see any mainstream authoring tool designer removing
	the appearance that you can do that, even if the tool
	really generated #id selectors for every element.


	Just looking at the way people use MS Word, very few
	people, even amongst graduates, think in terms of 
	structure.
