Good thought, indeed. Some (many) years back when I was looking at
preparing a book-length doc for the web with HTML I actually did
use the style-sheet method. IIRC, it worked well with HTML-2.0.
But with my Jotting stuff it got a little fancier, bit-by-bit
until I had at least two jpegs/*php plus very light blue <TABLE>
formatting [15%, 70%, 15%], and a textured.jpg "paper" bg on the
70%. That's 3 jpegs. I don't know if you can do something like
that with CSS. I wound up creating *one* html/php template, and
mouse cut-and-pasting my segue, then the <CENTER>meditation</CENTER>
and after a few hours it was good enough... .
I'll check into the style sheets; thanks!
PS: I also checked out Don Knuth's TeX stuff, but that's waaaaay
