Simple clean xhtml and css can do fantastic things, but if you want DTP 
perfect pages you should make them in a decent DTP tool and save them as 
PDFs. The web isn't a DTP technology and if you try to make it what it's not 
you are in for a rough ride.

I don't claim to be a xhtml/css wizard but if you have a look at CSS Zen 
Garden it does prove that fantastic things are possible.

I still stand by my comments that you can't use a WYSIWYG tool and expect 
decent pages, they will be okay, but never better.
