Um.  Are you saying "No stylesheet language can ever contain syntax
that looks like HTML tags", or do you really mean "There are no tags
inside STYLE elements whose type is "text/css", or do you mean "There
can be no tags inside <STYLE> because the content of a STYLE element is
not HTML and tags occur only in HTML"?
