>>P.S how do you turn off CSS in IE 5,0 ?
Is anyone able to answer this question?
I would love to know.
Not sure about IE 5.0 but in 6.0 this works:
Click on Tools>>Internet Options
Then click on Accessibility
Finally, in Formatting check each option off to ignore font styles and colors.
Doesn't work for 5.0, and I'm hesitant to update.

Disabeling CSS (such as anything else) is a breeze with Opera : Alt-P - page style... voila!
Macguru, I downloaded Opera and it's great, it doesn't crash and freeze like IE does every time there's a pop-up window. But IE has a feature I use all day long that the others don't, so I still have to use it a lot. I'm stuck with it for that one feature.
Marcia, are you up for editing the registry? Here's some information from Microsoft [support.microsoft.com].
|...the ability to disable style sheets was removed from Internet properties...To work around this issue, use Registry Editor to open the following registry key... |
To disable the use of style sheets, add a string value to the above registry key called "Use StyleSheets" and set it to no.
Short of that, you can disbable font styles by going to:
Tools > Internet Options > General > Accessibility
But that leaves the all the CSS-P positioning and many box properties still active.
tedster, I looked and the accessibility option is not there in IE 5.0. I never got a reply about whether to upgrade to 5.5 or 6, and now I'm doubtful because of security issues. I guess when I want stylesheets off I'll just use Opera.
What I use all the time is not the regular favorites, but that little arrow on the right top that brings down a drop-down list of links. It's easily accessible, and I use it all day long. Plus the visible links on one of the toolbars. I couldn't give those up.
Just click "edit", remove the link to the css, click preview in browser and there it is (you will sometimes have to save the file before you can preview)
For me it works in conjunction with Front Page, but I believe it will work also with the IE Editor. (IE5)
Nice solution ulstrup. That's thinking outside the box.
