Default How to Detect CSS setting?

Please Login to Remove!

Since the Blackberry browser has style sheets and html tables disabled by default, we wanted to figure out a way to detect those settings so on our mobile site we could display a link to a help file withinfo on how to set the settings. I noticed the browser user agent displays the same information regardless of the configuration.

I saw this on the ESPN mobile site for blackberry but I am not sure how they detected that the style sheets setting was off.

So what can we do on our mobile site to detect if CSS or HTML Tables are already enabled?

I'm not sure, but css maybe possible by making an object with the instruction link hidden using css (set its display: none) that way it only shows up if css is off.

In my testing, display:none doesn't work, but visibility:hidden will produce an effect similar to what is seen on ESPN's WAP site.
