Good question. At the moment, the Arena implementaion tries to read
the whole pointed-to document and looks for possible style hints. So,
all three alternatives you list should work. It will not follow any
<LINK REL=STYLE ..> in the pointed-to doccument, perhaps it should?

Anyway, all of this needs to be defined in the draft document. Thanks
for pointing it out..
