as you will be aware, adobe's support for ASV has lapsed for some time.
I'm not aware that it ever included users style sheets, or user agent  
style sheets.
however if someone knows different, it has some kind of historical  

It seems that support for user style sheet in SVG is at best  
extremely patchy.
