I'd like to add one more argument against the use of a STYLE attribute on 
HTML tags: the rendering software cannot know which stylesheet notation 
(i.e. CSS, DSSSL, Navipress, x-foo, etc.) is used in the attributes. 

Also, the HTML3-proposed ID element can unambiguously identify any 
single element for styling purposes.
