Excuse me? I'm not sure I understand what you are saying there! Could you
re-iterate your coments please...
Anyway, as Mr. Hickson pointed out, it's probably a bad idea anyway. Maybe
if I thought of a beter example...
Ah! p { color: #803050, else(color: #303030;); } for black-and-white
screens!
Hang on, that's a bit crud as well...
img { border: 1px black, else(border: 0;); } for imageless browsers, and you
don't want a border round the placeholder. Come on someone, think of a
decent example for me!
