I've been out of the HTML-writing game for a decade or so. Last time I did it, lots of seemingly simple things were very difficult to do (and not always because of IE! Vertical centering comes to mind, or truncating wrapped text to a fixed number of lines). I'm collecting examples of things that an HTML-naïve designer might want but which are technically impossible, poor-performing, or require crazy contortions to implement. Let's not worry about old browsers, and assume modern technology.
