Pretty sure Tim covered this in the CSS lecture.  Having a single style sheet for the 
entire website is good because a copy will be cached on the users machine and provides a 
central place to change styling.  Due the cascading nature of CSS if you want additional 
styling that overrides the stylesheet or that is unique to that page you can use a second 
sheet or place it in the head of the HTML document.  Just remember to place the second 
sheet/other style after you have called the global sheet.
