The only problem I have with the concept (as opposed to the
implementation) is that I may not _want_ someone else's damnfool
cutesiepie wallpaper in my browser window...which is why I think it
has to be an external option you can turn on or off, rather than
hardwired into the <body>...which is why I liked the idea of using
<link>: that's what it's there for, isn't it?

Heck even with all the different color attributes you can still do one
monster tag. Say lavender text floating above a space backdrop with yellow
anchors (gray when visited, white when activated).


At this stage, wouldn't it be easier to maintain your files if you

<link rel="presentation" href="">

where said

Paper*Background: http://x.y.z/mypix/ds9.gif
Paper*Foreground: cyan
Paper*ActiveLink: magenta

etc etc.
