We changed our usage from StyleSheet to Stylesheet a number of years ago, but we 
preserved the actual paths being used because changing it would have caused some 
backward compatibility issues.  We could have easily changed the option name, 
but it seems even sillier to have such a discrepancy between the option name and 
its default values.

I'm glad you were entertained.
