That is for now and it is not just one page, it is one page for each
language for now. The moment you want to change the frontpage, you need to
change each language. If future pages want to use a similar layout, you
need to change those as well.

Even then an inline css can(will?) overrule the pre-designed css file.
Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done,
and why. Then do it.
