My first guess would be that it is more related to USER AGENT than anything else:
var platform= navigator.platform.toLowerCase(); // Operating system
var appName = navigator.appName; // Browser name
var appVer= parseInt(navigator.appVersion); // Browser versionnumber
It appears as though the script is checking the OS (platform) and browser/version # to set the correct style sheet. It checks for the following OSs: WIN, MAC, OS2. If the OS does NOT match the aforementioned OSs, it sets the browser name and version to Netscape 4.
else // all other platforms
if (appName == "Netscape" && appVer >= 4) // Netscape 4
doc.writeln('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/eas-docs/images/mac_ns4.css">');
doc.writeln('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/eas-docs/images/win_ie.css">');
If there is a way to override your user agent, you could try that, but I don't know if that can be done on a blackberry or not.
