Being pixel perfect - Part 6 (Why aren't we pixel perfect?)

Lets discuss why aren't we pixel perfect? I see two main reasons for this...

1) We lack front-end development skills
- Our engineers understand and practice Java/Ruby/SQL quite well but most don't know (and ever want to touch) the HTML/CSS code

2) We're not disciplined in creating user interfaces
- Our struggle in being pixel perfect includes page (HTML element) styling... We don't follow a standard to ensure consistent apps. It results in inconsistent rendition of pages in our apps - style (font, color, size) and behavior (link, forms, errors).
