Thanks! I wasn't expecting anything but I'm glad to hear you are
willing to tweak it. Please send me the patches if you don't mind.

Or as one person suggested to me in private mail, you could write a
textual version of the style information and parse it in. So then
you would have:
-style {classic|modern|gobblefork}
Which would simply point to files (perhaps defaulting to a standard location
and perhaps having a WWW_STYLE_PATH, etc etc). And then users could easily
edit the style to their taste.

And *THEN* we could start putting these in our documents:
<LINK REV="WWWStyle" HREF="...">
and the WWW linemode browser could load that specific style for that
specific document (allowing for the user to override them of course).
And then you could write a style editor, and then we could standardize
it, and then... Oopps, sorry, I got a little carried away.

Just making headers and lists a little prettier will make me happy :-)
