That is less efficient as it means they can not have a local cache. 
Generally, being a web application, they load many pages, each of which 
uses the same style sheet, so inserting <STYLE> entries means that it 
would have to be sent each time.

That would be a really good suggestion though for web sites that expect 
to receive just a single hit (maybe high speed advertising site or 
something similar).
