	Yes you can.  It's in the "User-Agent" http header.  The tricky part is
knowing exactly which user agents (browsers) support which features.  It
can be done, it's just tricky.  
	There are actually some other things you can do with using transparent
content negotiation, messing around with "Accepts" headers and the like.
The www-style list probably isn't the appropriate forum to discuss this
though. But it is good for people interested in style sheets issues to know
that it is possible.
