Low-level javascript framework that abstracts away html/css?

Problem

Honestly, now when we have so many javascript features on the frontend I really wish javascript in the browsers could replace html and css entirely.

We could deal with objects (structure + design + functionality) instead of html elements and css that style these elements.

But since that is never going to happen, I wonder if there is any low-level framework that abstracts away html and css entirely, like node.js (not high-level like Sproutcore) but for the frontend?

I think that would be the next big thing :)

Solution

I think that a framework that abstracts away html and css, would by definition, be high level. So you are asking an invalid question.

I consider these all high level frameworks, but they are the only ones I am aware of that abstract away html and css.
