The real beauty with CSS should be below the surface:

- HTML that can be easily read without a browser;
- a concise set of style rules that embed a complete house style;
- pages that look good in Lynx, as well as a top end CSS
   capable browser;
- pages that support techniques like automatic table of
   contents generation, etc.

I don't think that people who only look at the surface will really be 
interested in changing form the methods (font face and abused CSS) that 
they already know and use.  As such, the page needs to be targeted at 
people who appreciate that the nature of the content may require a toned 
down design.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
