It can be, if correctly implemented. What you would probably want to do is to
build the cell layout using tables, rather than CSS, but *only* to define the
relationships among the cells. CSS emitted by the layout manager would be used
to set the spacial attributes of the rows and cells. The theme would have its
own CSS for things like text indentation, fonts, colors, shading, borders, and
so forth that don't affect how the various fields are actually laid out
relative to one another. In other words, the table only enforces that "there are
three cells vertically, and the center one contains two horizontal cells in a
75/25 arrangement. The rest is up to CSS.
