Message I've been looking at this. The biggest problem I see is that there is a
*lot* of stuff to convert. Generally speaking, all of our formatting is
done with the template files in the TPL directory. Plugins should *not*
be generating their own HTML except by using a template themselves.

I have a start of coWiki using CSS. It's rather a pleasure to work with
because the HTML is simpler but I'm not yet enough of a CSS guru to lay
stuff out without constantly rechecking my work. :-)
