Using HTTP Headers to Serve Styles 

Eric’s proposal is quite ingenious, although I see potential pitfalls.

At the ToonPrint development server, I have implemented an approach that’s a little more subtle, although it’s also easier to miss: based on the current domain, if it matches that of the development server, the <title/> will have “DEV — ” written at the beginning. This also has the added ability of being easy to spot in a multiple-tab browser window.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.
