Yeah

In fact if anything Stylesheets will make your HTML clearer for the search engines.
If you link to your style sheet, this will enable you to get rid of all those nasty <font> tags.

However - consider using classes rather than sticking the style tags directly into your links. It makes it a LOT easier to modify the style of your site later.
