Erm, that was my style sheet & since it doesn't take up much bandwidth here
it is again

#heading1{font-size: 24pt; font-family: arial; font-variant: small-caps}
 #text1{font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial; font-weight: bold;
font-variant: small-caps}
 #text2{font-size: 8pt; font-family: arial; font-variant: small-caps}
 #text3{font-size: 10pt; font-family: arial; font-weight: bold;
font-variant: small-caps}
 #text4{font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial}

One of the problem lines is this

The whole reason I bought this up is because it worked with (I think it was)
IE 5.1 I'm not trying to waste the List's time here, I know there are plenty
of on-line references for CSS cos there's been a lot of chat about it
recently. I know no-one has suggested that I am but I was just kinda curious
if anyone else had noticed this happening & whether it is a possible bug,
don't flame me for that statement, Microsoft has been known to put out
programs with a few bugs in the past :).

Hmm, does this happen? I downloaded it the other day when someone posted
that it was out. Should I download it again?
