I'd say the solution is to standardize your design process. I don't
see any reason - if you're designing new sites often - why you
couldn't just build a generic html / css template for each of the most
frequently used extensions and do minor customization each time. With
a cleverly thought out html template, it should be possible to create
a set of extension styles that don't need extensive customization. You
can even create separate stylesheets for each extension if you like
and call them into the main stylesheet...


I find it is only very rarely necessary to substantially change
extension templates once I've customized them the first time, and if
you make use of the _cascade_ in [c]ss, you get a lot of your
extension styles for free...
