That's what I was aiming for. To be able to stop css from being applied
from a given point in the document tree. The theory behind it being that
from this point external code is inserted with its own styling. Of
course there could be other purposes, but this is my main issue.

Whenever I insert an external component (block of html) that is already
styled, there's a mash of two stylesheets which often messes up my
external component (think of displaying a newsletter in-site).

Hope this makes things a little clearer :)

Greets,

It's not clear to me.  Do you really not want cascading, or do you want 
to prevent document stylesheets from being applied within a given 
subtree of the document?  Or something else?  It's really not clear from

what you said in your mail.
