Yes, this does seem to be even the easiest answer of all for times 
when I just want to display a message. It seems to work upon a quick 
check but I need to check in on various browsers. Thanks!

Well, I am starting to find that with the resize problem (in which 
all styles are lost) Netscape 4.7 is useless for CSS, as I was told 
from the start. I have been given a JavaScript to workaround the 
issue but so far have not had success with it. So I may have to give 
up on CSS for this project depending on how bad the client wants to 
retain support for Netscape prior to version 6.
