Insert "the" here and below.

If I was doing "stylistic" edits I'd suggest s/part/side/, but that's
getting too close to changing the content for my liking.

FK's right, extra comma here and preferably another at the end of each
quote, to match this one:

stylesheets would put the comma inside the quotes, but I'm siding with

I'd have suggested a semicolon (or even a comma) there, but a colon
would definitely be valid if the sentence started "it doesn't matter
