Summary: Inline CSS in journal comments using the style="" attribute
Original Request:
For some reason, anything in a style="" attribute is being stripped out of LJ comments before they render in browsers. This has destroyed a lot of the formatting in an RP/collaborative fiction project I co-mod.

Part of the appeal of this community is the ability to explore metatxtual and supertextual modes of narratives, such as using color and positioning to interpose elements of text, create "easter eggs" of hidden links or hidden text, and use graphical features to simulate lines being "scribbled out", etc; the loss of this functionality is a significant blow to the creativity of our users.
