My first guess would be that your using an outdated HTML draft.  HTML 3.0
(assuming for a meoment that there ever really was such a thing) has
expired, and Netscape probably doesn't support some of its stranger
elements and attributes anymore.

I do know that in 3.2, the <tr> tag can have only two elements -- align and
valign.  And there is no "decimal" value for the align attribute.

See: <http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/REC-html32.html#table> for more info.

I would try and stick to the HTML 3.2 specification in the future.  You
will likely wind up having to update your 3.0 code later down the road.
