CSS in current 4.x and IE 5 is a nightmare. There are lobying groups you can
join, like the web standard initiative.

Mozilla does an excellent job of fully implementing CSS1, and practically all
of CSS2 as well. Opera also has a good stab at it, all the test pages list
that as a good 2nd. Until Netscape 6 is out (based on Moz), don't count on CSS
being all that useful.
