I have found something, maybe already known, The HTML validator and 
the CSS validator can't detect this file is wrong :

http://www.la-grange.net/2002/04/03-styleatt-wo-meta

This file has a style attribute style="color: green; border: solid 
red;" but no metaname specifying the default stylesheet language. So 
by definition, the file is not a valid one :

HTML 4.01 says in the chapter "Style Sheets in HTML documents 
(14.2.1)" [1]  "Documents that include elements that set the style 
attribute but which don't define a default style sheet language are 
incorrect."

2002-04-03 The HTML validator says the file is valid.

2002-04-03 The CSS validator does not find any style and says there 
are no errors.
