tab-indented plaintext of proposed functions, per http://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki_talk:Common.js&oldid=39798
This proposed version (5 functions with little redundancy, importScript(), importScriptURI(), importStylesheet(), importStylesheetURI(), and appendCSS() -- see attachment, sorry it isn't a patch) maintain full backward compatabilty with existing copies of importScript() and importStylesheet() (as used on the English Wikipedia), and fix a few bugs in IE and Safari as well. They have been tested on the following browsers:

The functions should be added near the top, but probably below function addOnloadHook() and function hookEvent().
