More ironically that browser emulator could never understand/parse the
contents of those files correctly anyway :)

A decade after, current stable version of IE browser (IE8) still
doesn't understand half of the CSS 2.1 specifications and barf at
Query Selectors API.

Detecting the style loading happened and incorrectly parsing the
contents doesn't seem to be a better solution. Nor something planned !
