I'm attaching two screenshots hastily grabbed from my current Dabble  
development image.  The HTML is identical for both; the first is how  
it looks coming straight out of Seaside, the second is with some  
external CSS applied.  Notice much difference?

This is one of the areas where I allow myself to be opinionated.   
Developers *should* be producing ugly (and therefore simple and  
semantic) HTML.  A modern web designer's job isn't to modify that,  
but to provide a stylesheet that makes that identical ugly HTML look  
beautiful in the browser.  If your designer doesn't know how to work  
that way, I strongly suggest that you find one who can (or I can put  
you in touch with some).
