However, it was always difficult to decide if a specific declaration related to the layout or the typography of the site. Often, it could relate to both, and you’d end up making arbitrary decisions where to put them. This approach also meant having to keep multiple style sheets open and continually swapping between files. With features like code folding being built into most modern CSS editors, it’s now much easier to edit a single page than it used to be. So for these reasons, I tend to prefer a single CSS file over several smaller ones.

At the same time, they can be overused and even abused. Novice CSS authors often add classes to nearly everything in an attempt to get fine-grained control over their styles.
