Use some sort of CSS for text. I hate having to design my web text in PS and then re-design it using CSS. At a minimum, font name, size, weight, color. No need to go all out with line spacing, letter spacing, etc. just yet.

Can you PLEASE add some type of style 'classing' to photoshop. For designers who use Photoshop as the first round mock-up tool for websites and other print media it would be such an AWESOME feature to create the equivalent of a CSS class that you can associate a specific text layer with to immediately give it the color, font, font size, and font weight as another layer you previously created. This kind of style classing would be extremely helpful and save a lot of time especially if you decide you want to change how certain headings look or feel. Instead of editing each one individually, you could just modify the class, and then they would all inherit the new class immediately. Big time savings there.

Font rendering is always a pain. But when making a website mockup in Photoshop, I'm always disappointed that there is no option simulating the font rendering of a real browser.
It would be so cool to have a "web" option added to "sharpen", "crisp", "strong", etc.

Another thing on fonts: setting a proportional line height on type would be nice. Instead of setting 10px font size and 12px line heigh, we could set it like in InDesign or CSS: 10px font size and 1.2x line height.

As a web designer that uses photoshop this would be the biggest reason to upgrade. Web designers use photoshop. FACT. The web is about 80% typography. FACT. So why deny a mass market this seemingly obvious bit of functionality.
