That can hardly be considered an argument for using css from any humanly
authored math markup, it's simply an observation that CSS can place
characters at arbitrary coordinates on the screen so it can obviously
produce any layout, but one may as well suggest hand writing postscript
or pdf, which can similarly lay out characters by coordinates.
