Yes, but how many of them have TITLE attributes?  That's the only
question relevant to analyzing Ian's proposal.  I would guess almost
none, since currently the TITLE attribute doesn't "do" anything.

I strongly support Ian's proposal.  If one sees one of the purposes for
embedded stylesheets as overriding rules in a linked stylesheet (as
I do), then it could be very useful.

My opinion on Ian's question, BTW, is that his proposal in no way
disagrees with the current HTML specification.  HTML, as it exists
today, does not describe when the contents of the STYLE element are to
be used.
