CSS

Question:
Why does Netscape lose my styles ?
Answer:

Netscape 4.x has poor support for CSS. Having said that, the following points should be noted.
Invalid HTML will almost certainly cause Netscape to ignore your CSS suggestions at some point. You will find that valid HTML is your best friend, but for Netscape to work properly you must ensure that all elements in your markup which permit closing tags are explicitly closed.
Check and correct your CSS suggestions for the very same reason, Netscape 4.x is in fact doing the right thing, as per CSS specs (as opposed to MSIE) when it ignores style rules with errors.
Netscape 4.x has whats called an inheritance problem into its TABLE element. It can be argued that NS is all within its right to behave as it does in this case, but since the workaround is quite simple its easy enough to just use it and be done with it.
Lets say you want your TABLE content to look the same as your BODY content? Redundant styling comes to your help as in e.g. BODY, TABLE, TH, TD { /* insert your styles here */ }
On a generic level, Netscape 4.x likes to have style rules applied directly to the elements where they are needed. You can never really trust the inheritance principle to work correctly at any level in Netscape 4.x.
