Yes of cource the voted design should be mimiced as close as possible,
not suggesting we shouldn't :)
I often have a graphical conceptimage as target too, but such images are
static and usually only provided in "1 resolution" so getting good
behaviour across different res & fontprefs is still something that is
mostly left to the markup coder.

Understood, still we are discussing quite detiled things eg like exactly
how code sections should look like on the news listing. It makes a lot
of difference for what things you can suggest (& even implement in the
mockup site) if you are eg locked into an underlying TABLE-structure vs
if you have the full bag of tricks of true liquid CSS layout to play with.
So whatever way you look at it, the underlying markup itself plays a
major role for layout and IMO it's thus not desiarable to compleatly
eliminate discussing markup at the same time as layout. In fact it might
be outright detimental to the final resoult to compleatly ignore markup
even at this early stage.
Anyway, this is just my opionion based on my personal experiences, so
feel free to ignore me :)
