Chris,
I don't think you need the quotes:

I use 
.icap {
   font-size: 48pt;
   background: url(icap.gif);
   color: silver; /* lighter than graphic */
}

with

<p class=initial><span class=icap>T</span>he...
</p>

[if anyone wants to know why I end with an "unnecessary" semicolon, I add
them out of habit so when I go back to add more properties I will not forget.]

My page is not up yet. Its part of my personal pages/homepage on my HD. I do
run a web server on Win95 (PWS), so if you want to look I can send you my
current ip address.

Steve
