I think it makes everything easier! Firstly, it allows you to concentrate 
on the tasks of adding content and styling seperately -- you don't have to 
worry about what content will look like when you're typing it.

Secondly, it makes making stylistic changes to a group of pages very 
simple. If you need to change the background of 500 pages to white from 
yellow in CSS, you only need to edit one file. If you are using pure HTML, 
then you need to edit 500 files.
