I don't know how big in K's it is, but we're talking about a 40 to 50 lines
sheets (therefore, no longer than 3k).
Each line, only describes a single class. Example:
.normal {color:#FFFFFF; font-size:10pt; font-family:arial,serif,sans-serif}

(and so on...)

Right now, i'm talking of only ONE sheet.
Now i'm thinking about using more than one sheet at the time. This means,
divide the classes between them.

Yes I have (as long as I know).
But maybe i'm forgeting something. What else could crash my browser.
It's definitely not the HTMl tags nor the Java.
