Well, basically it is as CSS friendly as MathML. Some constructions are more CSS friendly in OMML (fractions, overscripts, maybe prescripts, radicals) some are less (nary, properties specified in the way that can not be accessed using CSS selectors). Certain subset will work in XML+CSS, but the same functionality can be gained through appropriate MathML profile. So in this respect differences between the two are not tangible. In addition I fear that if Microsoft will push OMML as a math markup for web then we will rather get bunch of WordML "pages" instead of XHTML+OMML. So it is not necessary good for web as such.
