Thank you Hakon,
I was bitterly disappointed in Netscape when it seemed as if they were not
going to uspport CSS and break their pledge at the Paris Conference. I had
patiently waited for months for CSS to become a reality and at that moment
when Microsoft, Netscape and Adobe sigend on, I bet the farm on CSS and
fully implemented it across my site. I wish someone would have been more
articulate at Netscape or at the W3C in making it clear that Netscape was
proposing JSSS as an addition to CSS.
