Hm. It's been a while since I fiddled around with CSS, so I have nothing
particular in mind, but I'll see what I can do. I have an exam tomorrow,
but I'll look at it on Thursday.

AFAIK it's not that hard to remember this choice server-sided (but yeah,
you need cookies for that, or try some /really/ dirty tricks), and it
should actually be fairly easy to do so for single sessions - but: I
suppose this is even harder to tweak into the init file. And it's
something which costs resources. And each script is a potential security
risk. ... And we may end up like the LSR in August or so.

If there's a method as simple as this Firefox plugin for other browsers,
too, I'd definitely vote for a client-side solution.
