Stylesheets for the website

I'm getting ready to implement different stylesheets for the website. On you can 
check it out, although it's stylesheet switching is only for the files 
under lfs/. There are three stylesheets for now:

* 2columns is the new standard. Unfortunately it doesn't work in 
Konqueror, although it's working in almost every other browser I tried, 
including IE.

* 2columns-menu is a variant of 2columns and implements a CSS-based menu 
for the general navigation. This variant only works in recent 
Gecko-browsers, and somewhat buggy in Opera.

* 3columns is the current default stylesheet. Nothing much has changed 
here and this is the most stable and trouble-free stylesheet.

Stylesheets can be selected via browser controls (only IE doesn't have 
this) or via the links under the logo. These links also set a cookie to 
make your selection the default. Currently this is done via Javascript 
although this will probably be changed to a server-based solution via 
PHP. Finally, I've provided some (slightly outdated) screenshots for 
each stylesheet:
