I think what Chris writes here, and Marc alluded to in the original post, is an important point to be emphasized for beginners.

You want to describe the functionality. So, not that "this is a green message", but "this is a success message", so the style name gives some meaning to the use.

Often, this means that you have what seem like repeated (or very similar) styles, because the "success" message looks just like the "informational" message--but doing it on a functional level allows those things to more easily migrate away from each other in the future.

I still find it difficult to properly break the style from the structure of the page, so when restructuring happens, it often means style changes as well.

As to Marc's other question, I'm not so familiar with the cascading part.

At my last place, we just started using bootstrap for styling, it seemed like that was a really nice approach.
