This requires too much work. I rather make only one stylesheet which can
be used with any browser but which doesn't look the same with each of
them. My current solution works just fine with Mozilla/NS6/Opera where
the navigation bar is fixed to the top of the browser and with
IE/NS4 it looks like a normal page where the navigation bar scrolls with
the page. No tables or ECMAScript is needed.

Thanks for the stylesheets. I will check them out later.
