I think that's a good suggestion.  I said from the beginning that we just
need to decide if we can ignore that 6% of people or not.  It's commonly
done on the internet.  That 6% is becoming expensive time wise.

The other option would be to try the @import trick and used a very scaled
down style sheet, as that seems to be what is causing the most of the
problems with NS4.  I'm just not sure what would be the minimum required.
But that's probably more work than is necessary.

It's too bad that after all these years the browsers on suck slightly less
then NS4. ;)
