	[DJW:]  My understanding is that Amaya is primarily
	an editor, not a browser; as such I don't think it
	should make it too easy to mis-design pages in this
	way.  If the design is really that bad that you can't
	guess the links, the authors deserve not to get your
	business, but you can still find the links in the
	structure view.  (Voting with ones feet has become
	rather topical in UK politics!)

	[DJW:]  I don't know whether there is already support
	for this, but I believe it is a presumption of CSS
	that the browser should, conceptually, have a user
	style sheet associated with it, and that !important
	rules can be used to override the document style
	sheet.  I say conceptually, as the style sheet might
	only be accessible by menus, not by loading a CSS
	document.
