As well as CC/PP the CSS working group recently published a last call draft
of "Media Queries" - a specification which goes some way to providing
conditional application of style sheets and similar mechanisms.

This allows for a bit more privacy. An even more interesting approach to some
of this was work done at the University of Melbourne on Constraint-based CSS
- they actually implemented it in a browser (Amaya) but it (obviously) didn't
make it into the CSS standards...

  The inappropriateness of further abusing user agent comments, and the
  existing protocol have already been covered.  I'd just add that there
  is actually a privacy issue with all content negotiation options - as
  well as telling the site about you, if you specify enough, you get
  a fairly unique signature that can be used for click trailing.

  You can get quite close to this by:

  Accept: image/*; q=0, */*; q=1

  although, strictly speaking, this only prevents the direct provision
  of an image, not the provision of text with embedded images.

  Deleted 59 lines of invalid HTML.
