A map with CSS positioned points of interest is semantically meaningless,
unless the relationship between the map and the points of interest is
given in the markup itself somehow.
The whole point of CSS is that is is cascadable -- that is, optional,
overridable, not part of the content. If you use CSS to position things to
convey meaning that otherwise would not be in the content, you are doing
no better than using <font> instead of <h1>.
