Oh, well, the whole "style" attribute thing is an open issue. Not much to 
argue about yet. What we really need here is solid research into the 
various use cases for the style="" attribute, its dangers, how it's used, 
what other features currently exist that might be better, what semantics 
are usually conveyed with the style="" attribute, ideas for alternative 
ways of doing those things, comparisons between those ways and the 
style="" attribute, and so forth.
