Here's another great but not so well known feature of Joomla 1.5. There is an easy way to view only your component on your joomla site, without any modules or css styles from your template? Just take a look at the url in the address bar of your browser. If there is already a question mark in your url, add '&tmpl=component', otherwise you can add '?tmpl=component'. If you try it on this site, you will still see some styling, because the css-files of the component are loaded, only these of the template are skipped.
This feature can be interesting if you want to add a 'print' button to allow your users to print only the content of your component. For Joomla template developers, it can also be interesting to isolate the component.
If you really want to remove all styling from your component, there is another way to do this. Add '?no_html=1'or '&no_html=1' to your url. In this case, even the styling included in the component will be skipped.
