Warning: This is a 'get it off my chest' e-mail.

Well, I am going to give up with CSS. I am sure ZStylesheet is a fine
product, its just that CSS implementations lets it down.

I have struggled for ages to get anything more sophisticated than
font-family* to work on both IE5 and Netscape 4.6 - no chance. It seems
they have both implemented CSS from a different hymn sheet :-( Basically,
nothing to do with sizes works the same, and it boils down to Netscape
ignoring the inheritance model of CSS. table rows and cells are a
particular mystery.

If anyone has cracked it and has developed a ZStylesheet which can second
guess both browsers, please let me know. Until then, I will go back to
using <font size="12pt"> or whatever. Shame, but I have more interesting
things to worry about.



*even font-family doesn't work for the BODY selector. Tables in Netscape
ignore it so you have to use BODY TR TD as the selector.
