On styles: could the style choice be applied eariler in loading the page? Having set retro black and returning to the site, the blue style remains until the page has finished loading - and because it loads quickly, I get a flash of blue (didn't used to occur).
Yeah, we know and considered it an acceptable compromise. But admittedly, none of us use retro.
In the old layout, one style sheet file defined default colors and another retro, and only one would be loaded. Or sometimes wouldn't be loaded at all, which caused an unstyled site with white background, quite regularly reported by users. Also, maintaining two .css files (or preprocessing with something like Sass) would be more work.
