This is similar to HTML vs PDF.

PDF always looks the same _if_ it can be displayed at all.

HTML (hopefully) can be displayed everywhere but only in very rare cases 
really looks "right" (unless the designer imposed harsh restrictions). 
And printing HTML pages in fact is a nightmare.

So maybe it's not possible to definitely choose one vs the other.
