I take it that some browsers *could* ignore a stylesheet that is <LINK>ed?
Or promtpt the user with an irritating dialog?

I put my <STYLE> in the <HEAD> where it doesn't appear.

My vote is for <LINK> being the primary method of applyiny stye to a number
of documents. Let's have the first instance applied automatically and the
remaining ones as choices.
