Neat! :)

This is probably the best way to do it.  The other option is pretty  
much to alter the actual content as it's saved to the DB.  Stick with  
a filter so it can be undone.

add_action( 'wp_head', 'myplugin_wp_head' );

function myplugin_wp_head () {
	echo "\n<style type=\"text/css\">abbr{color:mauve;}</style>\n";

Pretty simple. ;-)
