This may be slightly off topic, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me
advantages/disadvantages by using styles within the <head> tags of each page
as opposed to using the <link> tag and a .css file.  Obviously, using the
latter would make each .htm file shorter, and reduce some download time for
that file.

The alternative would be to use a server-side include to insert the code in
each page, which would offer the same sort of easy maintenance.

Thanks,

Ben Morris
