If you add the Web Developer toolbar extension, ctrl-shift-L disables 
all styles.

Another plugin I use in Firefox might be useful in these situations is 
Fangs. It gives you an on-screen text only rendering of a page, as it 
would be if a screen reader was reading it.

Suggestion for anyone designing web sites: simple is best. It's OK to 
use the standard heading tags and default font sizes. And starting with 
a sound base such as one of the Layout Gala templates makes things easier:
