I'm not Gerd, but I stayed up till 3 AM one night trying to figure 
out why Netscape put line breaks between my links, which should have 
been on a single line.  One thing finally solved the problem: 
specifying background-color with my colors.

But, of course, that was Netscape.

And there were nested divs involved, also.

But since then, I add background-color when I have color.
