Unlikely. This seems like a classical NN4 problem. Move all border
declarations to the imported style sheet and the problem may go away.

>Netscape 4.51, 4.79, 6.0, 7.0 (win) - ok

4.51 survives? Curious. In general all Netscapes between 4.07 and 4.7 are
really horrible. If it works in 4.71 or higher I'm content.

>Netscape 4.07, 4.08 (win) - both crash, assuming

Not necessarily. 4.05 and 4.06 were pretty stable builds.

Your choice.
