Site inline Style Analyzer

P: n/a
Is there any tool out there that will analyze an entire website and
produce a report of inline style usages by both total count and detail
occurrances. This would produce a list of possible candidates to put in
the css and replace those occurrances with the style or class in pages.
Just to do a search of style tags in Dreamweaver produces a large list
and then blows out dreamweaver when attempting to output the xml file.

Unix shell scripting, grep, and maybe a first pass through Tidy if the
code is scruffy to start with. You don't buy these tools, you build
them ad hoc.

Inline style by definition defeats the purpose of using CSS. CSS has
organization and logical grouping capabilities and this is what makes
CSS superior and better to using attribute specifications and elements
for presentation purposes. Instead of applying and repeating style
declarations at each element, one uses a stylesheet (local, external or
imported) where groups of elements (logically organized, grouped
together) are styled at the same time.
