MSIE3.0beta2 seems to ignore styles for BODY resp. HTML at all. 
It also doesn't implement alternate font lookup, padding, color 
blend, word spacing and letter spacing - to name just a few.

Microsoft deserves honor for implementing cascading style sheet 
in the first browser with a significant market share, but there 
is still a lot of work to be done.
