Yes, you should. From the CSS1 spec:

Traditionally, UAs have silently ignored unknown tags. As a result, old
UAs will ignore the 'STYLE' element, but its content will be treated as
part of the document body, and rendered as such. During a transition
phase, 'STYLE' element content may be hidden using SGML comments: 

<STYLE TYPE="text/css"><!--
H1 { color: green }
