That's only a problem if there's both DSSSL and CSS style sheets available
and the client can handle both DSSSL and CSS.  In that case, I would leave
it up to the client to choose which it prefers.  The content provider isn't
really in a position to make that decision: if the client has a very
complete CSS implementation but only a rather limited DSSSL implementation,
the CSS style sheet may be preferable; but if the client has a complete
DSSSL implementation, the DSSSL style sheet may be preferable.

You're going to have this issue whatever mechanism you use for associating
style sheets.
