yes, at least lynx and w3m ignore all CSS and show the TOC at the bottom of 
each page instead of inside a sidebar on the left. That's one reason why I 
tried so hard to put the TOC after the contents in the .html file (although 
that proved too hard for myself to implement correctly in IE...).

Yes, we can easily add another alternative CSS, which does not make use of the 
tricky box positioniong to get the TOC to the left.

That's another reason why I tried to put the TOC after the contents in the 
html page. Of course, since I'm not blind and have absolutely no experience 
with screen readers, I don't know if that's already sufficient.

Hehe, yeah, I remember the mail about being doomed and following someone 
having good ideas ;-)
