But, like most populist questions about javascript, this issue is really
not about  javascript.  In this case, it is about styles (although the

Javascript is a codeword for all non-declarative aspects of HTML based
web pages, in popular terminology.  (Similarly, in popular terms HTML
itself has a very similar meaning, except that it also includes Flash.)
