This page clued me

This page clued me onto a very cool CSS technique: alternate style sheets. Basically, by putting links like:

<link rel="alternate stylesheet" title="Alternate"
href="alternate.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

in the of your document, compliant browsers allow users to switch style sheets. Currently only mozilla and netscape 6 have this capability (look under the View menu/Use Stylesheet) but there are some favelets that allow you to switch stylesheets in some other browsers.

This is a very cool testing tool, and I spent a few minutes developing an alternate stylesheet.
