Of course but what about the Flash designers (coders or designers).

I believe that having a dynamic css doesn't urge the designers to
program it. I don't like much this old way of thinking: code and coders
at one side, design tools and designers at the other one. Data vs code.
It brings a lot of bad communications. Languages parse and parse again.
Data are statics and full of redundancies.

Coders and designers should do there work orthogonnally
without annoying each other and with their own point of view. But why
not doing this on the same language core. It would even be nice for
designers to have a bit of coding possibilities like macros. This
standard philosophy results to the failure of Lisp. I hope the trendy
solution like XML/XSLT would give us a future way of composing
page/wiki/application in a more DSL fashion.
