CSS is mainly providing layout and/or formatting for your pages - for example, use green text for headings.

Meta tags provide descriptions and keywords for some search engines and directories to use when they spider and catalogue your pages.

CSS (with html 4.01)is the way to go - I've almost completed updating a 50+ page site written in html 3.2.

Despite some suggestion to the contrary, meta tags are still very useful, especially if they are RELEVANT: "description" - a brief description of the site, telling a searcher what to find on it; "key words (and phrases)" - if they match words and phrases used in the headings and ordinary text on the page ("keyword density") and perhaps a geographic location, e.g. for a shoe shop site in Tasmania. These are especially useful in a niche market. The emphasis should be on giving the searcher helpful information. Do a few Google etc. searches and read the info about the sites in the search results.
