But that requires knowledge of design which tends to be lacking in 
those creating amateur pages, and even in many creating commercial
pages, although I think that things are maturing in this area.

The effect of making styling easy has been to create garish pages, not
pretty pages, and to encourage the creation of pages structured only
to the extent necessary to delimit the presentation elements.

What I was saying is that, if someone has something to say HTML has the
tools to allow them to do it quite well.  If they also want to make that 
something sound good when mechanically spoken or look good and, at the
same time, be easily readable, when viewed visually, learning a styling
language is one of the least things they need to learn.
