Patch #1415956 from Bryan Carbonnell adds CSS for styling purposes and
changes the HTML to be valid XHTML1.0.  It still needs some tidying
up, and it still uses tables for layout, but that patch takes us
halfway there.

It presents one big compatibility issue that will probably need to be
fixed.  The patch removes the colour settings (WEB_HEADER_COLOR,
WEB_ERROR_COLOR, WEB_ADMINITEM_COLOR, etc.)  and replaces them with
CSS class declarations.

It's probably unacceptable to break the use of these settings, so
there needs to be some compatibility fix.  Colours could be
substituted into the .css file somehow, or a 'style' attribute could
be added as well as a 'class' attribute.  Does anyone have suggestions
for what to do?

[Aside: are there many patches in the tracker that could be useful?  I
don't know how actively they've been getting processed.  Does there
need to be a push to process bugs and patches?]
