"An alternative is to use external script and style documents." is
mentioned at the URL referenced and is a reasonable solution.

There's always the hixie method though:

comfortable using on a public website.

Why would activating the "Download File" function in my browser do
anything related to bookmarking?

(See previous comment regarding quality of code at dynamic drive)
