Three reasons:
  - I don't know how to program it backend.
  - I'm really into JavaScript.
  - I want to use the W3C stylesheet alternation mechanism.

very well stay with the default theme - it's not supposed to be going to be
that bad a theme after all.

The css should be all fine... it works standalone, in at least Moz 0.9.8,
Opera 6 and Ie 6.0 without problems.
