Hi Jeremy & Jennifer,
you are completely right and I'd like to apologize to all of you that were frustrated with the CssClass property. We are debating at the moment what to do with the CssClass property and since you seem to find this feature usable, we are thinking about a way to make it work and yet keep the markup clean.
Perhaps we will go along the lines of displaying the control wrapper if the CssClass is set and otherwise not.
Anyhow, thank you both for giving us a really good feedback and for your patience. Once again, I'd like to apologize if we had caused you frustrations.
