Stylesheets are one of the easiest ways to produce problems with different browsers. Taking a step like the one you suggest would rapidly result in a site that was only navigatible in recent versions of IE.

That would be completely unacceptable to me since at home I use Netscape on Linux. If vroom took a step like you suggest and problems cropped up I would publically announce my reasons for leaving and if that didn't solve it I would. Certainly the stylesheets at a few home nodes has led to my avoiding certain people's home nodes. But the fact that the problem is localized has made it (almost) acceptable so far.

So I really, really don't want vroom to allow people to use their own stylesheets everywhere.

    I understand the proposal like this: When you _browse_ the site, it serves you a link to your style sheet.

    If you have a personal style sheet, it doesn't matter if it will break "different browsers". On person, one browser, one style sheet.

    /J

      That works. Have the stylesheet be per reader, not per poster. Makes sense to me.

      I was confusing this with an earlier thread that was definitely per reader.
