From CSS Discuss

I am the founder of the Emacs Wiki at http://www.emacswiki.org and the maintainer of the Oddmuse Wiki Engine at http://www.oddmuse.org. One of the goals when forking Oddmuse from Usemod was better support for CSS. I wanted to clean up the HTML and move all the styling attributes into the default CSS supplied with Oddmuse. It worked rather well. I also also added more classes and divs to the output to enable various layout tricks.

I then started experimenting with themes. You can set a 'theme' parameter in your cookie which will be used as the class of the body tag by the wiki engine. Thus, you can quickly switch themes as a user.

Only later did I see how to extend this even more. Now you can set a 'css' parameter in your cookie which will be used as the CSS link by the wiki engine. Thus, you can use any CSS available on the web as a user.

My own homepage (with an example of how to pick different CSS) is at [1]

Somebody I know wants a fixed "menu" -- ie. Fixed Position for IE. Yuck!
