I just discovered something distressing in the latest style sheet draft:

<URL:http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/Style/css/draft.html>:
| CSS rules can possibly also be included in HTML attributes:
|
|  <H1 STYLE="font-family: helvetica">Headline</A>
|  <P STYLE="font: 12pt helvetica bold">Paragraph</A>

Does this buy us anything that the combination of CLASS attributes and
<STYLE> elements doesn't?  I'm worried that this would eventually lead
to atrocities like:

    <P STYLE="font: 24pt times bold; align=center">Level-1 header</P>
