Don't know if this is covered in any of the CSS standards yet or if 
it has been discussed.  Sorry, Haven't he time to follow the list. 
So, I beg pardon if this is old news.  I would like to ask that 
browsers be required to report if styles are active or not.  Perhaps 
through the HTTP header?  The guidelines for creating pages that are 
accessible to the disabled require that pages be usable with styles 
off.  It would be nice to be able to detect if styles are enabled or 
not on the client browser and take actions to modify the page as 
appropriate (server-side is better, client side would be nice, too).
