This is basically the transclusion issue.

However, I would point out that for the most common web page use of 
included content, syndicated material, one wants the style to match that 
of the containing page, not the syndicator's style.

In those cases where that is not appropriate, it would seem to me that 
the better construction is to use an HTML object element to contain the 
included material.
