Hi Janne,

I'm not suggesting that we attempt to provide a loaded stylesheet
that attempts to mop up any problems with IE, but we could either
add a blank stylesheet with the IE hook, or at least document this
(apart from here on the mailing list). I've created a new page on
the jspwiki.org site:


I agree that Dirk's default stylesheet does work quite well across
browsers, but for those who aren't using the default stylesheet
they might find this as a reasonable solution. It kinda makes me
itch but I'm getting used to it.

Thanks again to all who contributed information.
