So what's the advantage of CSS over HTML?

For a site like my Sylv site, where the design is basically the same on each page, CSS lets me have a few set styles (the first S in CSS) for the writing of the text. So for my main text, which I want to be Verdana font (with 2 other optional fonts available for computers without Verdana) at a particular size, I have a style called main. Then for the smaller text, I have a different style - same font, different size, perhaps centered. And I just have one folder that contains the code for all of my style sheets - main, datesize, footer, header, etc. I get more control and the code isn't quite as bulky as all of the font-on font-off stuff. And Dreamweaver's been making it pretty easy for me so far. (Though I still have to tweak the code at times to get it just the way I want it.) CSS doesn't supplant HTML, just adds to it.

Aha... so in effect, the information about the page layout exists in one place only, so that all the individual page files are smaller?

Yup, you've got it in a nutshell.
