Sage alternative stylesheet

screenshot of the alternative stylesheetSage is an rss newsreader for mozilla. It works really nice, mostly because you read everything inside the browser. And also, because it intergrates seamlessly into your bookmarks.
Another great feature, is that you can edit the look of the inline rendered newspage with a custom CSS file. Scott Kingery made a cool css stylesheet that works great as alternative to the default CSS.

I modified this one, to make it more useable, in my opinion, that is. My stylesheet hides all the info and description by default. And shows you only the title of the newsarticle. Great for a good overview. When you move the mouse over an article it pops open and you can read all of it.

What you must do, is copy the text below, and paste it in an empty textfile, modify it a bit to suit your needs for colors and save it somewhere. Then from sage-configuration dialog you canselect the userdefined css file you just saved.
