Document formatting: PHP? XSLT? CSS?

It suddenly clicks: What I always disliked about XSLT was the idea of having to maintain a complex HTML layout in a rather ugly XML file. PHP embedded in HTML is so much nicer to read than HTML embedded in XSL.

But if it's really possible to keep the HTML file extremely plain and simple and do all the fancy layout in CSS (csszengarden.com), then XSL might not be so bad after all...
