Yes, that would make sense if the full code at the bottom was a direct  
copy of the existing stylesheet, but in fact, it is a concatenation  
and cleanup of all the styles found inline, in imported sheets, etc.  
The cleanup is fairly useful, but it also means that lines in the  
output and in the input are no longer related at all.
