Hi Tony, and here's another solution, though maybe Eric's is simplier. 
I just finished taking a css class at SmartPlanet and "discovered" the
body  border attribute.  Unfortunately, it only works well in IE4+
(well, it would work in NN, I think, but I'm applying a background
repeat-y and the two together get totally screwed up).  So .... this one
talks about platforms, too.  There are four choices: Windows/IE and NN,
and Mac/IE and NN/  So, I made two style sheets and just linked IE to
one, and the three others to the other one (w/out the border).  Yep, it
all goes in the heading.

Just did this tonight, so its "hot off the press", and a little scary
that maybe it works right for me but not the rest of the world. ;)  If
anyone sees anything weird, please let me know.

You can get to the code through the link to my home page in my
