    Removing Some Style

    Can anyone tell me how it is possible (if indeed it is) to disable style sheets using IE5 on the Mac? Sorry, I don't have a Mac to hand.

    Thanks people

    I know there's a option under:
    Tools->Internet Options...

    General(Tab)->Accessibility(button)

    and Under Formating check/tick:
    Ignore colors specified on Web pages
    Ignore font style specified on Web pages
    Ignore font size specified on Web pages


    If you want create your own stylesheet and attach it there instead.

    Actually, I don't really want to. But a colleage believes that a bug that's been reported might be because of this - that the users has disabled CSS. I think it's a long shot, but first I needed to know if this was even possible.

    However, there is a very good reason for some people to disable style sheets. They may find your site difficult to use, and may chose to use their own custom style sheets - visually impaired users will often do this. It's good to check whether your site is usable with style sheets disabled, because some will do just that.

    Also, disabling style sheets lets you quickly see how much mark-up you've got at page level instead of inside an external CSS file.

    DIsabling your style sheets is always a good idea for testing purposes. Websites that are accessible usually work with ANY style sheet, as structure and presentation are distinguished from each other.

    It doesn't seem that anyone has responded with the answer (azizur, that was for the PC. It's different for the Mac)

    Edit > Preferences > Web Content > Show style sheets

    Hope that helps
