FWIW, we tend to have all CSS qualified by some class that's on a div  
that wraps around the entire page.  So:

<div class="global">

and then, instead of

table {color: red}

you have

.global table {color: red}

That way if you have something like the walkback page that isn't  
inside the normal global div, none of the styles apply.
It's also easy to do themes: just switch that div to global2 and you  
can have a whole different set of CSS come into effect.
