I know from experience that

   @import "foo.css";

isn't understood by IE4 - I only found it out by accident (surfing in
IE4 - shock horror!), simply because I'd defaulted to "" because I
thought it was easier to remember and use.

   @import (foo.css);

Or whatever the other version is won't block IE4, it's true.
