CSS in Normal View

Is there a way to be able to see the affects of a stylesheet on the text in the Normal view of an article that is referenced by the Template of the article?

My gut instinct says no, but it would be real slick if it could.

I would guess no too... That's what the preview button is for.

Perhaps if you pasted the CSS into the article?

Yep, that works, but sort of defeats the idea of using a centralized stylesheet. Oh well.

I use the preview to see how articles look with templates and stylesheets applied (normal view won't show template stuff either).  I actually like it this way.  I use normal view to focus on content and preview to focus on presentation.

I have a ledger-type page which has to be built with table in the article. Being able to see the various distinct cells makes life a whole lot easier.

I ended up splitting the styles, using the .css file for the overall formatting and then placed article specific styles in the article. Works fine.
