This is root of our disagreement.

For example ? There is full compartability:

I will not guessing about your objection - objection must be concrete.
I'm listening you.

You use terms in back direction:
all, written in HTML, is content; all, written in CSS, is look.
But content itself and look itself are category of thinking -
