And in the second week* you learn that relying on style sheets and <style/>
definitions will result in failure in a disturbingly large number of
html-email clients.

html+css support in web browsers is sufficiently advanced and supported that
it is appropriate to upbraid any bad code found. The same can not be said
for html+css support in mail readers though - it's a real shambles, imagine
it's the days of IE 2.0 all over again.



* well, probably not the second week. More like in the first week of a
optional elective in the second year.
