Using XHML + CSS, you get

         1) Higher positions in search engine results when customers
             search for the type of products that you sell.
         2) faster page loads as the page only contains simple/clean
             XTHML with NO "HTML" presentational markup.
         3) even faster page loads if you define styles for all of your
             pages in a single CSS file. That CSS gets loaded & cached
             by the browser the first time any page of your website loads.
             All subsequent page loads (other pages) do NOT result in
             separate loading of CSS (presentation/styling) - ALL use the
             same CSS already cached by the browser.
          4) XHTML is a step closer to XML which is better at defining the
              semantics of the information that you wanna communicate
              instead of the messed-up markup when you use HTML with
              its presentational tags/attributes for styling (without CSS).
          5) Easier subsequent maintenance of your website as designers
              only have to change a single style (CSS) file when they want
              to modify/enhance the styling of your website. On the flip side,
              you are forced to change styling on EVERY single web page
              when you use HTML with HTML presentational/styling (and not CSS).
          6) Depending on how you structure your XTHML document (page),
              you can also modify your web page WITHOUT incurring any
              -ve impact on your CSS. That's the + of keeping things separate.

I hope the above points are enough:)
