I haven't played with browser settings to deeply as I like to keep my 
settings in the default state, but if a user clicks a few buttons in 
her prefs window does that create the user stylesheet with the 
!important rules? If not you are betting on the fact that the user 
understands CSS (and to a fair level once we get into !important).

I understand CSS very well and I don't want to have to write my own 
style sheet to prevent other people messing with OS widgets.

I can understand your frustration, Charles. We all come up against 
these things all the time. I just don't agree with your position.

There are far more important things for CSS to tackle than this.
