By definition, the contents of the style attribute must be in "the  
default style sheet language". The default style sheet language is by  
definition CSS unless a Content-Style-Type header (either HTTP header  
or <meta http-equiv>) is present. There can only be one default style  
sheet language per document, thus any document which wants to use a  
non-CSS style sheet language in the style attribute cannot use CSS in  
the style attribute. (That is, you can't use CSS in some style  
attributes and non-CSS on others.)
