Do you mean: In the manner of 'I can literally read the phrases'?

Page-design not usually breaks readable text, but maybe too often.

css comming up to be a standard. I agree that there is really cruel
design out there on the net: Unuseful and overwhelming with it's
flicking and flashing effects.

Crap to 'five nines' relative to what? No, I don't agree referring
to flash, the design made by some flashdesigners is not always that
bad. And last but not least: Images and sounds got the power to
communicate things too.
HTML is not a presentationlanguage, but css is.
But you're right: people have forgotten the meaning of HTML these
days. They often don't think on it in a communicative manner. And I
think they're paying for it these days.
Fortunateley there is a bugfix for mozilla out now. Web designers
are not limited by such a bug.
But they are nevertheless responsible to fit to a culture of
communication, considerate to the netcitizens.
