I moderate at another forum where we had a live chat function. It was used rarely, as users were forced to delve into the lower reaches of the forum (well, actually, two clicks away, but I wanted it to sound dramatic :) ) in order to access it.
I think, if CSS were to implement a chat function, it should be located on the homepage. If not, then I can't see anyone using it frequently, or, in a worse case, at all.
