Let me be the HTML to your CSS. I won't cramp your <style> and I'll make sure we're always closed tight in a <div>. I'll bring my wireframes the first time we meet and you can bring the users. We can spend hours together picking through pixels, tossing drop shadows in our dust, and dancing through fields of text-editors.
