Those who remember my bomb throwing last month about 'JavaScript Style
Sheets' will be much relieved to find that NS has finally stated they are
supporting CSS1 in NS4.0 (after months of silence on the issue):

"Style sheets. In the past, Web page designers wishing to affect aspects
of page design such as colors and text sizes had to write HTML tags for
each element. With style sheets, designers not only get complete control
over these elements, they also can build a style sheet standard that can
be leveraged repeatedly. For example, a corporate document style can be
created so all pages share the same corporate look. Navigator 4.0 supports
two versions of style sheets: Cascading Style Sheets (CSS1) and JavaScript
Style Sheets (JSSS). (Both are in review by the W3C.)  JavaScript Style
Sheets have an added benefit - they can be programmed using JavaScript. 
For example, using JSSS, designers can query JavaScript for the browser's
window size, then calculate and display margins and font sizes on the page
appropriately." 

It also says they are putting Unicode support (Yay!) in.

There is bunch of other fluff in there (surprise surpise) but those are
the magic items for me.
