What is the default value for
   <link  media=...>
   <style media=...>
?

 http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/styles.html#edef-STYLE
 http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/links.html#edef-LINK
say that the default is "screen".

The example given at
 http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/present/styles.html#media-cascades
implies that the default is "all".

Browsers seem to take "all" as default:
