Sample Usage

This is a library that uses your trusty little Modernizr to give you the possibility of specifying required features for a certain stylesheet. Using it is a simple matter, illustrated in the following excerpt:

    <script src="modernizr.js"></script>
    <script src="detectizr.js"></script>

Just remember to include Modernizr before Detectizr, and you're good to go!
