actually, i mean the inline commenting within each style... they were
there to help guide jeff on a style change app se he'd have variable names
(suggested) to work with and know where they go...

the other comments i like, although now i'm wondering if there's a better
way to track changes to users don't have to download the extra few

i'm open to suggestions (still love the idea of sourceforge)...

this is good to know...

one of the things i wanted to ask folks here is about moving some
attributes out of the main CSS file and calling them via @import... those
attributes would be "line-height", "padding" and "margin" since those are
the styles that hose NN4.x... IOW, is it worth it to split them for the few
NN4.x users we get... Feb stats suggest that only 10.5% of browsers are
netscape, but navigator 4.x doesn't have enough entries to warrant a
listing of its own under the raw numbers...

one other question, mostly for jeff (i think)...

what's the status of using the style switcher on teo?  is it something that
v2 will ever see?

i ask because this adjusts how i'll prioritize bringing the other CSS files up
to date...  i still would like to bring them up to date so users can install
and use them if they want, but if there's no general changer, it can wait
