IE5, NN6, Opera 5: Perfect
Omniweb: Doesn't support background colours yet, nor a:hover.
iCab, IE4: not-so perfect. iCab doesn't support a:hover yet, besides neither 
of them shows the border. My guess is that you should replace

border: 1px solid #009;


border-width: 1px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #009;

to get the style sheet perfect in IE4Mac and iCab.

IE4 supports @import, you're right about IE3 and NN4.
