Provides the cascade. Note also the use of precedence.
The basics are that no matter what the author wants,
if the recipient/reader can't understand it, you're wasting your time.
Hence the reader should always have the final say?

By default, rules in author style sheets have more weight than rules in 
user style sheets. Precedence is reversed, however, for "!important" rules. 
All rules user and author rules have more weight than rules in the UA's 
default style sheet. </quote>
