Not to keep on about this, as it is off topic, but this policy has just effectively put you back almost a decade in terms of the amount of work you're going to have to do to design webpages. I can understand how a company would want to limit the amount of control a normal content author would have over presentation, but developers should be granted far greater discretion. This is especially important in terms of accessibility as if you identify an accessibility issue and the root cause needs to be addressed at a level above page content (ie, in embedded styles or code rendering done by the CMS) then your hands are effectively tied. In short - I feel your pain. ;-)
