i got an email over the weekend from Girish noting that the issue had been 
passed to the developers internally at TT who are looking after stylesheets 
now and that they will be starting on a fix today. no firm ETA, but the issue 
is acknowledged and it's being worked on.

and i didn't even send anyone any email or bug them or anything. apparently 
some of the TT people on this list brought it to the attention of the right 

i'll keep you informed if i find out about a working patch before you do =)
