I was doing it myself and I'm glad to see I'm not alone :-).
However there are things that I've always found hard to resolve between 
these two stylesheets. For example take borders. They are needed mainly 
for decoration purposes but they also affect layout. In some cases the 
problem can be quite severe: if you have two 50%-wide floats side by 
side adding a border to any of them places them one below the other.
Do you have any more or less defined methods of dealing with this?
