Shawn, do you use CSS for layout when your visitors will be using
Netscape 4? I'm mystified by your comments. You seem to be arguing that
using tables for layout is a dead art, and that we should all be using
CSS wholeheartedly instead. It's a nice dream, and if you limit your
layouts, it's achievable, but if you're working for real clients in the
real world, I just can't see how you can deliver.

Could we see how your advanced CSS layouts work in Netscape 4? I'm sure
we'd all love to learn how to do it.
