Hi David,

Can't this already be done using JavaScript and with VBScript or JScript in
Internet Explorer?  Especially in conjunction with a cookie or cookies
containing user specified preferences and the 'document.write' function.

| Quick summary:
| 1) JSSS allows user input and, in principle, more complicated styles than
| CSS.
| 2) To get these more complicated styles, the *author* needs to parse the
| document, so expressing reasonably complicated styles is much easier in
CSS
| than in JSSS.
