I was once demonstrating an HTML based interface to a support call
tracking system.  One member of the audience said that they liked the
colour scheme, fonts, and general layout: it was better than many web
pages they'd seen.

To their amazement, I explained that I had used only "logical" markup
(such as `<h1>' for a top level heading), and let the browser do the
rest.  The interface looked good in both Navigator and Explorer, and was
perfectly usable from Lynx.
