RE: CSS3 Genrated content, comments/questions

This is true. I strongly feel a css layout is better than the table
layout. There is the advantage of not using tables, and the advantage of
putting the layout in an external file downloaded once. 

I think the point that Dave was trying to make is a layout that requires
70kbs in it for either table information or css information is large. As
such, is there anything that can be done to try and keep bloating down,
not just move it from one place to another?

If you are worried about that, then make a version of your stylesheet
optimised for your front page, and embed it directly in the page. You
then use your generic stylesheet for the rest of the site.

Note that table-layout-markup tag soup pages are regularly 70kb or more.
This is nothing new. The size is merely moving from every HTML page to a
single CSS sheet.
