Simon,
then why are we constructing a standard? :^ I think much of what we see now
is influenced by incomplete implementations. You're right to think there
will always be designs that degrade in a browser that does not follow all
possible style suggestions. Negative margins are one example, which I
believe are important---at least for side margins. My hope is that when
most of the basic style concepts are there, the popular CSS-aware browsers
will be able to render interesting designs similarly. Most of any criticism
directed at the Microsoft gallery was due to the repetition of content, not
necessarily of style. I found many of the pages interesting and like the
new fonts coming out of your efforts.

Steve
