How about this?

Some of the greatest "architectural/academic" sins are the reason why the
web is as popular and widespread as it is today.

 - TABLEs for formatting (or just say markup used for layout)
 - inline scripts and event handlers (as Daniel pointed out)
 - forms (ecommerce anyone?)

And as far as the best solution is not always the purest...

I suppose that depends on what you mean by "best" ;-)

but yes, I agree.
