in thread more css support, step 1

1) "I'm supposed to have some clue what the point is based on what?!"

Point is, there should be as little tag attribute values hard-coded into the HTML; instead they should be relegated to CSS directives. That has the benefit that layout and appearance can be tweaked and improved on a site or per-user basis (by individual CSS settings) without having to change the least bit of the PerlMonks engine code (see the CSS Zen Garden for what's possible with CSS).

So, no, those changes aren't pointless, and ++ to jporter for his work.
