Yes, but it's not clear whether the stylesheet counts as "content," in
which case a mirror would need to have a copy of it, or "presentation," in
which case a mirror would not need to have a copy of it. On a similar
note, is it acceptable to mirror a copy converted to PostScript, provided
it is clearly labeled as non-canonical, and the URL of the canonical
version is clearly displayed, along with the status of the document.

Is the content covered by the copyright, or is the HTML "program"?
