As you see, there is 3 stylesheets.
1 for explorer, 1 for netscape, and 1 for the rest.
Its not very elegant, but work :)
the DISABLED atribute is excusibe of explorer, so netscape ignores this
and use this stylesheet.
document.createStyleSheet is also exclusive of explorer.

Any best idea?
I hear opinions
