CSS has the huge advantage of being widely used and documented - books tutorials communities. Alas, most of the early confusion around CSS stems from browser wars and version/feature cross-fire cross-platform trickiness. Most of that is behind us now. /View has some very cool features, but is terribly weakened by being only known to the select digerati of lonely planet Rebol. CSS has many tools which support it and make it trivial to format via wysiwyg interfaces. Macromedia Flash 7 [aka FlashMX 2004] now supports basic CSS in its text fields. This is very cool and speeds up developement and allows on-the-fly changes because ActionScript can dynamically alter internal CSS stykles in swf movies. View could adopt a similar scheme to good effect I think. Famous sites for smart CSS use Books by Eric Meyer and Jeffrey Zeldman are recommended. - Jason
