OK, so to sum-up, aural style sheets are not in practice especially 
popular on the web due to the lack of compatible screen-reading 
software (although if one is keen enough there's emacspeak). 

What's to be done about it ? Seems to me there's a huge need for aural 
style. FreeTTS looks promising, in applet form it could in theory 
provide a bridge to most browsers to render a page aurally. Again, it's 
a case of do-it-yourself though. 

Thankyou all for your help. By the way, does this list ever 'loose' 
messages ?
