Happy new year to list members!

Now a question. While fighting with subtle, but hard, formatting questions, mainly found into our source "border of chaos" (t.i. the end of a nsPage page), I found that many from them can be solved with html/css  code; and I'm using more and more explicit html tags into pages, to test them and to build user-friendly templates after a thorough testing.

My question is: why precisely the use of explicit html/css tags is discouraged, in favour of templates? Is there some server issue, or is it simply a matter of "user-friendly" code politics?  I guess, that many users will get lots of advantages, if they could use more largely html/css, and if they would be encouraged to go deeper and depper into html/css language studying excellent tutorials as those of w3c schools.
