Thanks for your concern.

CSS won't be activated by default. You have to do so yourself thru the .hmrc file or the options file. I trust that people who activate this option won't give a URL that doesn't point to anywhere.

Later, I'll give some pointers on how we have setup our Apache servers to take into account broken CSS implementations.

> If your implementation ensures that the .css file will always exist, in the referenced location, no problem. But prospective users of the CSS capability should be warned.

Like I said, if someone wants to use this option, they'll have to make sure they have a .css to link to :)

> If one doesn't wish to use CSS, I assume no <link> is put into message file headers? If that assumption is wrong, I have a problem with your implementation.

Your assumption is right.

Don't worry, I'd never have proposed such a change if it would have fragilized the code or hampered the use of hypermail even if you didn't want to use it.
