The biggest problem with pages like that isn't the size: it is the
maintenance.  A large CSS site can be redesigned by changing one file, but
using old-style formatting you'll end up having to change every page. 
(And hope you don't make a mistake, or forget one.)

Still, they are nice if you only need a few pages.

But this isn't a webdesign list.  ;)
