Another naughty NN4 cause of frustration comes with line-height : suppose 
you create a single paragraph for an image, without align="left" or 
align="right". Then line-height will cause this line, "logically", to be 
STRICTLY the value specified. Thus your image will overlap the following text.

My advice: use specific stylesheets for specific browsers. More wisely, use 
the "@import" rule, not understood by NN4, thus removing the problem 
without much ado.
