Nope, it is impossible….
Why the files is not opened in CSSEdit is Apple faults, they have removed and 
removed things in every new version of the OS… There is a "new" way to doing 
this. I have to download a copy of CSSEdit (I don't use it, SEEdit Quick CSS is 
much faster and it is also so easy and fast to add a class to already written 
html code.) or could you send me the Info.plist file from CSSEdit. Then I could 
fix it, if CSSEdit don't refuse.

Using external css files is the correct thing, then you need only make changes 
in one file (the css file) to example change the color to a paragraph that 
exists in many pages. getting lost in the html5 page? It is better to use css 
classes (but with a describing class name) to avoid getting lost in the html 
document. Using one or more css files is just a taste and what you are 
comfortable with.

Perhaps some others on the list have and suggestions how to use css files?

Contact me off list, if you could send the CSSEdit Info.plist file (zipped) I 
take a look at it ASAP!
I just checked after CSSEdit, and it looks it is no longer available as 
"standalone app" ? If so I need the Info.plist file from your copy of CSSEdit.
