I forgot to mention that validator.w3.org doesn't "play" with CSS, but uses
it. The usage isn't perfect yet, though. Neither are CSS implementations.

"Eye people" aka "non-techies"? Sure they would. Guess why so many programs
come with skinning capabilities nowadays, because people look at the looks
first (and some only).

Really? Bad browser. But AFAIK it does allow user stylesheets, you could set
one up with all your likings and !important written all over it.

Sure it would function fine without, but it would not help to dismiss the
"pretty webpages are not possible with valid strict [X]HTML" grumbles.
Actually it even functions without HTML for the results, although in beta
stage.
