It is generally thought good practise to "lurk", i.e. to read messages
without posting, when you first join a list, so you can get a feel for the
opinions and the topics discussed. It is also necessary to read up on
necessary literature before posting. I will not go into the details of what
you ask. HTML is specifically a *content* markup language, and has nothing
to do with presentation whatsoever. Please go over to www.w3.org and read a
couple of things before trying to debate that almost everyone here takes for
granted. You are posting to www-style, which is a list about stylesheets on
the Web, and these stylesheets where created specifically to remove
presentational markup from HTML. I for one refuse to discuss this any
further.
