    External css is loaded once, and cached in the browser.
    Internal css is loaded at every page-request.

    Presumably, external CSS will have a faster loading speed than Internal CSS, because the external CSS is called from your computer's cache.

    Well an internal cache is within the page itself. That causes the page to be bigger, and as such takes longer to load from any cache.

    Because the CSS is external and split off of the html file, it is overall faster because there is less info to go through in the html file. Basically in programming when you have library files (e.g. CSS file) there is usually a tiny speed increase. Also, if you have a library file that is used for multiple html files instead of the same library file info in each page, each page is smaller and therefore quicker to load. Also, it's easier to update ONE library file than the same code over and over again in each html file.

    although since it is seprete the browser must load the requested page and then request the style sheet a double load process after requesting the style sheet the details of th style sheet can only then be applied although this may not be noticeable on faster modems

    CSS is generally so small it doesn't matter. Add one image, and all your speed 'optimizations' are blown out of the water. And, if you're that paranoid.. just gzip your CSS files and gain a speed increase of about 10x.

    Use linked CSS documents - it's way better for maintainence.

    You forget the most important thing in your "equation": It's true, that the first time you load the external css, it's slightly more work on the bandwidth. But since the styles is then cached in the browser, it's not necessary to load it again, causing it to load faster.

    And a little "coffee"-reading:
    Google on "Internal or External css?"
