Subject: [thelist] Can't get CSS to work

So I finally am working on a project where it is acceptable to have the
look like crap in 3.x browsers, as long as it looks decent in 4+
We are also distributing the application, and want our clients to be
able to
easily modify the look and feel.  Sounds like a swell use for CSS!

But I can't get it to work for simple things across browsers.  My
testing is in NS 4.7, NS 6.1, and IE 5.0 on Win 2k.  This is more first
attempt at doing all the look and feel in CSS, and I am failing
I use "text-align:center" in one class applied to a TD, and it left
my table in NS4.7.  I can't get a class to overwrite my default link
teh same way in all three browsers.

I am trying to avoid using my old stand-bys like FONT tags in A tags to
overwrite the fonts, and align attributes in my tables.  I'm trying to
too much, or is it my ignorance of CSS, do you think?  How much
stylin' do I still have to use to get things to work cross-browser?
