Before CSS was well supported by browsers, there was also a clear 
requirement from the web design community to build complex layouts, and 
they started using tables and all sorts of markup trickery to get visual 
effects, and browsers implemented all manner of funky proprietary tags 
and attributes to do even more visual stuff in HTML. That does not mean, 
however, that it's the right thing to do, IMHO.

(X)HTML is for content, CSS is for presentation. Wouldn't the generation 
of links be more of an XSLT issue?
