Using XHML + CSS, you get
1) Higher positions in search engine results when customers
search for the type of products that you sell.
2) faster page loads as the page only contains simple/clean
XTHML with NO "HTML" presentational markup.
3) even faster page loads if you define styles for all of your
pages in a single CSS file. That CSS gets loaded & cached
by the browser the first time any page of your website loads.
All subsequent page loads (other pages) do NOT result in
separate loading of CSS (presentation/styling) - ALL use the
same CSS already cached by the browser.
4) XHTML is a step closer to XML which is better at defining the
semantics of the information that you wanna communicate
instead of the messed-up markup when you use HTML with
its presentational tags/attributes for styling (without CSS).
5) Easier subsequent maintenance of your website as designers
only have to change a single style (CSS) file when they want
to modify/enhance the styling of your website. On the flip side,
you are forced to change styling on EVERY single web page
when you use HTML with HTML presentational/styling (and not CSS).
6) Depending on how you structure your XTHML document (page),
you can also modify your web page WITHOUT incurring any
-ve impact on your CSS. That's the + of keeping things separate.
I hope the above points are enough:)
