I forgot to add that you may save a lot more space. CSS files can get pretty big and complex. They could be 50K (which is pretty big, but okay since they get cached the first time they are accessed on a visit) and you could save 3K - 5K or more. That's nothing to sneeze at.

Here is an older article about the ESPN redesign and how much they save:
http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2003/espn-interview/01/

"The Savings Add Up
* Page reduction (est.): 50KB
* Page views/day: 40,000,000
* Projected bandwidth savings:
o 2 terabytes/day
o 61 terabytes/month
o 730 terabytes/year"

That is an amazing amount of savings. At $10/gig of transfer (very low for a site this big.. its probably more like $40 - $100), they would save $7.3 million per year. $73 million at $100 per gig.
