Is there a point to CSS? Of course there's a point to it! My goodness man, you can create a .css file and save a bunch of settings for borders, spacing, font, colors, and more as a theme for the entire site and have a single LINK tag to tie it in to every page. Saves ya a heck of a lot of work, saves the user download time.
Point number 2... you can do so much more with CSS than you can do with normal HTML (I consider the style property to be a CSS feature).
easier, faster, more powerful, more efficient... What more do you want man?
