Not forbidden, but not encouraged instead of the older markup.
Adding it now will just mean changing it later, and with multiple
language-versions per file, that could get messy.

By all means.  What we really want to do, methinks, is rip out
all of the layout information and let the stylesheets apply
it when generating the HTML.  However, I don't think we're
doing the XML thing for the 1.3 documentation (though I personally
think it would be a Good Thing; any volunteers?).

Let me see..  Ah, yes, here it is.  Check out the page at
<URL:http://scarab.tigris.org/source/browse/scarab/www/ui/csi/style/>
with and without CSS enabled.  The L&F is quite similar so I think
we could take a clew from the way it was done to get the most out
of CSS without having to bog the source down with the old-fashioned
markup as well.

Let's definitely start working on a CSS stylesheet that does what
we want for the documentation.  I'm all in favour.  When we've hammered
out something with which we're consensually happy, we can retrofit
the docco to use it.  In the meantime, though, I think having CSS in
some files, and not in others, and even different CSS in different
files, is just a confusing morass that we'd do well to avoid. :-)
