CSS rulez!

DO not confuse structure and layout.
We can perfectly put at  the top for the layout and at the bottom in 
the structure. So the page will be fine in text browsers and in 
graphical browsers.

It could be anywhere else. :) It's very easy to put it where it will 
be convenient, but at least in the structure of the text it will have 
to be at the right place.

When the new validator will be finished... I will help to tweak the 
CSS which has minor problems right now ;)
