I think Joe Novice was more comfortable seeing style tags right next to content--where he could tweak it and immediately see the results--instead of in a separate document or at the head of a document. And I say this knowing all the arguments for and benefits of separating the two. What I'm not seeing are the free or cheap editing tools that would make this as intuitive as it was before.
