I spend most of my time working in CSS. A good developer does his/her best to separate functionality from design as much as they can. Think about it this way..
If I develop an entire website using XHTML/CSS and I want to completely change the design of the site a year later, it's very possible to change nothing but the CSS, keeping all the content/functionality intact if it's done right.
Plus IMO all the visual tags in your source just looks bad. But something everyone can benefit from: XHTML/CSS sites are generally better ranked and have far better results as far as SEO goes.
Please don't take this the wrong way, but anyone swearing by HTML and with no interest/use of CSS is either learning in the past, or ignorant. Either way their work will easily be outdone by any teenager who commits a few extra hours here and there to stay up to date.
