thanks, i'm quite glad to hear that...

i also use that method for CSS (for now, that'll change once N6 
gets true market share and the 3.x users fall away some more)... i 
code using (ack) font tags and all - make it look just right without 
*any* CSS, and then start wrapping in your classes and applying 
your global styles...

it isn't the best solution for all circumstances, but for my client-
base it certainly is (one client surfs on NN3.02 on the Mac and 
always complains that text is too small and has too little leading)...
