Hi Listees

For browser/platform detection for CSS do people consider it better to use a
client side JavaScript or a server side CGI script?

My thoughts are that Server side CGI might be better, putting the emphasis
on the server rather than the clients computer - but this would mean the
user accessing a CGI script from every page, which is probably not a good
idea (is it).

Any thoughts, or suggestions would be helpful.
