From an accessibility point of view, works can mean that they degrade
cleanly to a linear form, not just that they produce the expected 2D
layout.  I suspect you meant the latter, but the main reason for
styles being stressed is the former behaviour.

You may have to turn off style sheets in NS4 to obtain such clean
degradation as it tends to half implement things in a way that 
breaks the graceful degradation path.
