The ability to localize (almost) everything necessary to display
some particular segment of a page in one place.

There's this persistent desire to controvert reality by insisting that
presentation is independent of, and hence can be separated from, content.

Look at a few real web pages.  Often as not, the presentation *is*
(a significant part of) the content. All the purist cries that can be
mustered will not make it otherwise.
