And this is a totally ridiculous way of dealing with stylesheets. I remind
you that the cascade and the design of CSS let you easily override any style
present in a document instance. It's incredibly easy to "flatten" *all* the
styles in a document instance for the purpose of cell phone rendering.
There are tons of RSS feeds out there that _do_ have styles, that you can
easily read in an xml-compliant browser like firefox.
