No question. It is also absolutely the case that HTML itself is the wrong
place to introduce a facility for such things. HTML is a markup language, not
a page description language. If you want unique look & feel, use something
else--part of the *point* of HTML is that viewers can use it to provide a
uniform look and feel.
