How to Choose an Alternate Stylesheet

This varies by browser. At the moment, only Netscape Navigator 6 supports this natively, so the directions are for that browser. They're pretty simple:

  1. Select the "View" menu.
  2. Select the "Use Stylesheet" submenu
  3. Select the stylesheet you wish to apply to this document.

Note that the titles shown in the "Choose Stylesheet" submenu are specified in the title attribute of the LINK element. Please feel free to examin the source of this document for further information.

For the sake of completeness, I'll include some links which will get different styles in each alternate stylesheet:

Once you've picked one of the alternate stylesheets for this page, go to the next page, which links in the same alternate stylesheets. Notice that it starts out with the default stylesheet instead of the alternate that was picked for this page. Even worse, when you come back here odds are you'll be back to the default styles. This is why Javascript-and-cookie-based style pickers are gaining in popularity.
