Theoretically this could still be done only with editing of the 
stylesheet.  Of course, it's not that simple - Mozilla comes closest to 
decent browser support for that sort of radical change, and even it's 
not there yet.

Actually, I think the idea behind what the previous poster was saying is 
a) with stylesheets they don't need to touch the HTML once they've 
finished with it (and handed it over to you for PHP work)
b) you therefore won't need templates
