in reply to CSS back into HTML

Unless you are having to support Netscape 4, CSS should be identical for all browsers. Since older browsers constitute less than 1% of the traffic to my sites, I've forgotten all about the browser wars.

It sounds like you are being asked to do this from above. Now would be a very good idea to suggest some of the strategies put forward by Jeffrey Zeldman on designing with web standards.

If you are using HTML as a machine-readable data format, how will any presentational style information be used?

    [OT] Oh...I wish. Maybe when it snows in hell. I spend my days building sites with CSS and XHTML (no tables, W3 validated) and the hacks that are necessary to get any given page to work across the board is almost overwhelming. Both Win and Mac IE's are the worst. Mozilla, Netscape and Safari are the best. It's a like defusing a bomb all day long.
