My CSS-plugin (HexMac CSS) returned some problems with color-definition:
it doesn't like "orange", "maroon"

Not that this must be the fault, but at least it _could_ be.
(Netscape is rather schizophrenic at interpreting CSS)


<tip type="CSS">

    if you create crossbrowser/crossplatform Style-Definitions, avoid using
    underscores (like, "form_description") in Classes/IDs. Netscape (mac
    4.75 at least) fails the interpretation DUE TO the underscore.
