Why don't you use only Jade? 

I've written a German translation of the XML 1.0 spec and used Jade for the
conversion to HTML. It worked very well!

Isn't that one idea of CSS? to have a client side style sheet?

3    The cascade 

author/reader balance 
      Both readers and authors can influence the presentation
      through style sheets. To do so, they use the same style
      sheet language thus reflecting a fundamental feature of the
      web: everyone can become a publisher. The UA is free to
      choose the mechanism for referencing personal style

Just wait for the UA which supports this ;-)
