this (http://www.alistapart.com/stories/n4switch/index_bak.html) is the style switcher, from A List Apart (http://www.alistapart.com/). I have a similar script that i wrote, that lets users write their own style sheets, though it's pretty useless, if you don't have a big regular following, like slashdot, or this forum.

I guess its simple enough to control the color-scheme....but as far graphics are concerned you require a server-side lang.

no, that could be done with javascript as well. the could would just be bulkier, then.

If you fully separate content and layout, you can use:

<link rel="alternate stylesheet" title="Alternate layout" type="text/css" href="bla.css"/>

Modern browsers are supposed to be able to do this, but the only I've used which supports it is Mozilla/Gecko - I believe there is one other lesser known browser too that does this...
