Great example. For the in-line style debate, I don't believe Stylish or
Opera has a problem overriding in-line styles. Wondering what does...

*raises hand* I know I'm not a typical user, but I have a
stylesheet I switch to that shows me alt text in Opera (when you
turn off images, Opera defaults to keeping the exact same
dimensions used by the image for displaying the alt text, which
means that most alt text is illegible unless you change the
style).

But actually, I know tons of users who use stylish
(<https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/>).
Looks like that Firefox extension has 422 reviews and, whoa,
15,750,650 downloads. So even if only 1% of those downloads
correspond to real users of the extension, that's 157,000 users
of User style sheets.
