The most important consideration is readability. That's better served  
by fidelity to Smalltalk conventions than by fidelity to the HTML  
spec. A rendering method is Smalltalk code that generates HTML, not a  
template language. That's a good thing - rendering code can be  
refactored like any other Smalltalk code, and can thus generate  
complex interfaces that would be difficult or impossible with  
something that had more fidelity to HTML.
