... not to mention the "what if". What if, during the whole 
xhtml'ification, you figure "fuck! This doesn't work! Back to square 
one" (which happens a lot to me) - you've just lost a good 4 hours!

The way I see it, a screenshot mockup is the quickest way to commit the 
mistakes you were going to commit anyway, and learn from them. Some 
things work in your mind, but _not_ on the screen.
