You were right Erika. Good eye! The nonstandard html was the problem. It
didn't play nice with css in NS. Used to work fine without css. Now it
breaks NS. I've ripped the offending code out of all the pages. At least
I've got my borders back. #B^) CSS lets me apply an bullet image for lists
which works in IE and is supposed to work in NS in the near future. I'll be
adding that soon.
