Pros of separating:
Fragmented -> Easier to change locally, without affecting many other
Fragmented -> Can be difficult to manage
Where only few sheets are used, bandwidth is lower
Cons of separating:
More files -> slower to download
More files -> scattered code
Alternative stylesheets might be hard to manage
I suggest you carefully think /how/ stylesheets should be separated. It will
be tedious to change in the future. I sometimes embed CSS in the HTML files
to avoid the "change in one affects another".
