Perhaps we have different definitions of good.... Any time I create a page with any nontrivial CSS, I end up running into bugs and incomplete implementations in every single browser currently on the market. To me that makes CSS much more difficult to use than it should be.

In fact, in some ways text-only browsers like lynx have the best CSS implementations. At least I can depend on them ignoring the CSS instead of pretending to implement it and doing something totally bizarre.
