Yeah, but not the same brain glitch as before..... I think my brain just
reverted to table cells instead of CSS by accident that time. ;-)

Bitte, Herr Canfield.

Ah, very good. I thought so, but couldn't remember for sure. Good to hear. :-)

oh, gosh. <grin>

I can look again later if no one else answers ya. I need to head out for
the moment (time for my mom hat for awhile).

Oh, I remember some NN4 problems from quite some time ago with having the
spaces (I don't remember specifics at the moment), although I haven't
noticed any problems for quite awhile. Mostly, it's just habit these days.
I also include a semi-colon (;) at the end of the last designation, too,
which isn't required:

hr {

Just my little quirks of how I prefer to format my style sheets, that's
all. :-)
