Except the marketing people who decide on the requirements will never,
ever settle for what you can do with plain HTML/CSS.

In my experience, HTML/CSS makes a pretty awful GUI for a non-trivial
application.  With some Javascript and sweat, you can almost make it
to mediocre.

Indeed.  Separating the visual appearnce stuff from the "structure"
makes it a lot easier to deal with both, and the result is a lot more
robust as well.
