I don't see any reason why CSS can't be implemented today, even if it's
something as small as coding some text to appear in 9pt Arial and having to
settle for <FONT SIZE="2"> for people who aren't using the latest browsers.
For those people who aren't using a CSS-capable browser, it's relatively
easy -- with the right planning -- to build pages that degrade gracefully by
using the <span> and <div> tags and to have the right classes created ahead
of time. For me, the real frustration with CSS is the way Microsoft and
Netscape implement it with their respective document-object models. Each
company's different way to refer to the different objects on a page makes it
impossible to create cool, potentially useful features like drop-down menus
and expandable lists while only creating one web page. And of the two, I
have to say MS's makes more sense, from a programming perspective.
