Chris,

re: Opera, I checked the user style sheet was working in html... Why  
did you find Opera USS.css was working in SVG? I can re-check if so.

regarding IE5.2 bear in mind this is on OS X. ASV is fine , but all  
style sheets appear greyed out, which is weird given one is in a  
dialogue searching for a user style sheet. However it may be that  
this was a result of limited MS support for IE on OS X.
I'm not sure as I never used it much.
ie5.2: explorer,preferences, web content, show style sheets, use my  
style sheet, select style sheet: [anything.css] all greyed out.

cheers

Jonathan Chetwynd

In Opera, did you say in the preferences that you wanted to apply a
user stylesheet?

Pseudoclasses work on SVG in Opera (tested on 9.10 under Win XP)

Its possible to do. Please see

However, do you mean that you were not able to get an SVG plug in,
running in IE, to apply user style sheet?
