How much overhead is actually involved in parsing pages? For instance is 
there a way to compare this overhead with the resources consumed by using 
an external CSS file for pages served?

OTOH I guess it's easy enough to change httpd.conf to also parse .htm* if 
that becomes a more sensible option in the future.
