However, CSS makes [X]HTML very usable for print output. I now do all my 
printed work using CSS/XHTML and the only problems I have had thus far is 
lack of full CSS support in browsers (I generally stick to KHTML since it has 
the best of all the implementations)

This is a problem in itself. Webpages that won't work with any arbitrary width 
(over 640x480) have issues... And before someone says nobody uses 640x480 
anymore, consider that not everyone has their browsers maximized.

Nor with screen-based display.
