If it's HTML 2.0 I assume it's got numerous font tags mixed in with
the multiple nested tables. I guess you and you're friend only create
web sites as a once of service and don't maintain them for your
clients because maintaining "tag soup" is not fun and that is the
biggest advantage of CSS and tableless layouts. Sure when you first
start out creating tableless layouts they take a while, but it gets
easier and faster the more you do it - probably like when you first
learn how to design layouts using tables.
