Whilst there is probably a lot of truth in that, it is potentially bad 
practice and hints that the author is creating a presentational page. 
One of the real benefits of CSS is that it allows a house style to be 
defined by someone with artistic flair and the content to be defined by 
someone with domain or language skills.

I think a lot of the content management market exists because, instead 
of doing this, authors are made to use something other than HTML.
