For my code, for example, I estimate I use ~25% less bytes when I use
CSS rather than tag-attributes. My application is very interactive -
so for anyone on a dial-up link this difference
would make a noticable difference in usability.

It seems a shame to admit defeat, and to deny those who do invest in
the latest browsers the
benefits gained by using the latest standards.

It also does not encourage the browser vendors to keep up with the
standards if there are (unnecessary?) impediments to creating content
in them.
