Why do you love CSS?
For love’s sake only
What drives you crazy when using CSS?
Inevitably, when browsers don’t behave the way they should.
The impatient desire to push things forward and the inability to use CSS3 is also frustrating!
Why should people write well structured / semantic markup?
Because it’s what the cool kids do.
