Earlier versions of Netscape 4.x are well-known for crashing when using CSS
definitions for margin and padding, as well as occasionally throwing a fit
when using border definitions. Over the past six months, less than 2% of
60,000 page hits at my site have been from Netscape 4; as you say that
you're not worried about making the layout the same in Netscape 4, I'd hide
the stylesheet from that browser altogether.
