good preference.  the page was designed so as to have low impact on the
server on purpose.  as a rule even.  wilber can't take it.

i read of a rather elegant solution.  apparently Netscape refuses to
read the <link></link> tag if it contains the media attribute.  so you
can set it up this way:
   <link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="/style/dgo-ns.css">
   <link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="/style/dgo.css"

and netscape will happily skip the second stylesheet.
