I already addressed that in my previous reply, but please don't mistake
HTML for what actually is CSS's competence.
Of course, if there's a problem with the block-model in CSS (I just
love IE!), changing the markup won't change it (of course).

Discussing XML and SGML just implies the data-structure.

If you like, I could give you an example.
