Hopefully you'll use .js! (AFAIK, no software recognises .js as
associated with application/x-javascript).

Try the comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets newsgroup, which is
dedicated to these problems: this is a technical mailing list for
discussion of the CSS specification itself.

But since you ask: you will exclude all those people who disable
JavaScript, and you also commit yourself to a major effort in terms of
multiple style sheets. You also face a problem in terms of new browsers,
which won't be picked up/or else they will be incorrectly recognised.
You could instead try hacks to avoid the problems; more tips on this can
be found at:
