Actually, there is an authoring tool, iWeb, which pretty much does just 
that, although it also throws in a and img :-(. It seems to be fairly 
popular amongst not-for-profits authoring their own sites, I believe it 
comes from Apple.  It also follows the Appendix C fashion and does all 
the styling with style attributes.  The version that created the page I 
just checked was 1.1.2.

I complained to one user who was actually promoting it, but it didn't 
worry them that it was creating semantic free HTML.
