given a stylesheet "a" which imports two stylesheets "b" and "c" which in
turn import one stylesheet each, "d" and "e" what is their relationship

  / \
  b  c
  |  |
  d  e

following the spec, "a" as the importing stylesheet is the most important
one. (section 15.1 Stylesheet Import).

now, is the order of importing the stylesheets
    "b" then "c" then "d" then "e", or
    "b" then "d" then "c" then "e"?
This seems not to be explicitly stated in the spec, but is obviously
necessary to decide on the imortance of each.

When the spec says

"Definitions and template rules in the importing stylesheet are defined to
be more important than definitions and templates in any imported

does "importing stylesheet" mean the root stylesheet, "a" only, or any
stylesheet that imports another stylesheet?
