  IMHO user should be able to save the stylesheet even if the author hadn't
  included embed="embed". So this should be a matter of browser design,
  not (X)HTML itself. As far as I know MSIE5 can save linked resources
  (images, stylesheets, etc.) with the document. Yes - older browsers can't,
  but they do not support embed, however.
