Evaluate the Browsername in the HTTP Request. Use the appropriate
Stylesheet for the given Browser and you're fine.

Note, that in this way you can also optimize content presentation for
all the different WAP phones out there by using different Stylesheets
for different phones.

The usal way to go is one Stylesheet per phone. It's even worse than one
Stylesheet for Netscape and Internet Explorer when using XHTML.
