I'm saying that if I have an external stylesheet which styles an entire site
(which I see as one of the major benefits of CSS) and I want to override the
values in the style sheet, why should I have to bother with the <style>
element? Why shouldn't I just be able to use the style attribute? Is there
that great a difference in using the style attribute rather than id'ing the
element and then applying styles in the <style> element other than it is
redundant and annoying to do the latter?
