This is true, but the cost is still 100K for the first page then 5k for
each page after that. In addition to this, it is the first page that
generally should be the most performance minded of the pages.

But due to stylesheets being site-wide, and due to the maturity of
caching
solutions, this stylesheet only has to be downloaded once. So what used
to
be 100k per page is now 100k per site, with just 5k per page. So the
overall experience is much, much faster and significantly lower in
overall
bandwidth cost.
