Yeah, I have the same problem with NN6+ (Mac and PC) because it tends to 
space out images for no reason other than having a DOCTYPE 
declaration.  Stupid.  I usually use ColdFusion to check for it and kill it 
if Netscape 6 or a Mozilla build shows up.  Although, as I look at your 
site, that looks like a cool trick.  Does that work for all browsers?
