I can't go through details, because that might breach the terms here, but all I can say is that using CSS is great, specially if your CSS is external and linked back to your page rather than embedded in the page itself.
At the moment you saved 20% on using CSS - BUT - it's still embedded in your page, you can save probably another 20% or MORE - if you externalize your CSS - which means:
open your page and go view > View Source
See those styles like div#container etc
They can be moved from there to a file called for example Styles.CSS and link it to your page, you'll be surprised how fast your page would load.
Because at the moment, the browser still needs to read all the code you've got in the page.
