Do you have other css files (such as one w different background-color,

That would be a nice addition. If you added them to the header following 
the examples in this link, people could switch among them:

There's even a stylesheet switcher for (blech!) Netscape 4.x:

Of course, since Internet Explorer doesn't have a "use Style" menu like 
Mozilla, it wouldn't know the difference (but who cares?) I guess you 
could always provide a "Choose style sheet" favelet on the page for 
challenged M$IE users...

[OT] BTW, there're about 20+ nifty "favelets" accessible from that site:

What's a favelet? It's a JavaScript "link" that can be clicked on or 
dragged to the Personal Toolbar to perform an action (such as reSize the 
window to 800x600, make all DIVs or TABLE elements on a page have a red 
border, or list all IMAGE elements in an 'alert()', or validate the page 
you're on w a click from the Personal ToolBar). Favelets are also 
referred to as "Bookmarlets". Here're a couple of useful ones (watch 
wrap on the long ones) & there're more on the above page:
