Completely break? Can you explain please? If the browser supports no
scripting languages (or they are turned off), the CSS link appears in the
<noscript> line. I did my best not to lock any browser out of CSS (except
IE3, where it's too dangerous). In the very worst case (like NS with JS
turned off, so no CSS either), you still get the HTML, which ideally won't
depend on the CSS anyway.
OK, in that case, `completely break' is not an accurate description.
But it still seems to me that CSS1 was supposed to be platform independent,
and writing different style sheets to work around browsers is the wrong
