<blockquote cite="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/styles.html#h-14.4.2">
  - To make a style sheet preferred, set the rel attribute to 
    "stylesheet" and name the style sheet with the title attribute. 
  - To specify an alternate style sheet, set the rel attribute to 
    "alternate stylesheet" and name the style sheet with the title 
    attribute. 
</blockquote>

  <link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" href="q.css">
