In my opinion, the styling of the captions format should be mapped to the  
equivalent CSS and act as if it were applied on each caption, thus  
overriding conflicting style on the <overlay> element. If this doesn't  
work for some more complex caption formats I suggest that CSS simply be  
ignored. Certainly user CSS could be applied, just as it can for any  
content on any page.
