Your comment on C29: Using a style switcher to provide a conforming

Working Group Resolution (LC-2886):
Thank you for your comment.  At this time the Working Group feels that this
should remain a CSS technique.  The Test Procedure has been updated with
language specific to checking for scripting controls that allow the user to
change the CSS.

This change will appear in the next public review draft.
