Very nice! I've tested it and it works in Mozilla, Safari and Opera. It 
doesn't work in IE6 though, which is actually the only browser who 
benefits from the styleswitcher! :-)

Also, there are still some small bugs left:
- it seems that if no cookie exists (eg. on first page load, like you 
mentioned above), no style gets displayed. This happened to me in 
various browsers (IE, Mozilla, Safari), so it's not a browser bug. It 
should use the style with rel="stylesheet" or the one with no title.
- the generated markup doesn't seem to be complete. I'm not sure, but it 
seems that no end tags for <ul>, <li> and <a href> are generated. Can 
you adjust the script so it closes the tags?
- the stylesheet which is in use doesn't get displayed in the generated 
markup. Is it possible to make this optional in the javascript?

Thanks again!
