| I have run across an interesting MSIE & CSS1 issue.  As near as I can
| it's a bug in MSIE, but I would like a few more opinions before
sending it
| to MS:

| <!--
| .Normal { text-align: left; font-family: "Times New Roman";
| 12pt; }
| -->
| <BODY>
| <P CLASS="Normal">
| <FONT SIZE="5" FACE="Times New Roman">
| This text should be fairly large.
| </FONT>

I would say it should, but others have already said that it is not... 
I think HTML should override CSS1, however, there are good reasons why
it shouldn't, so I am torn between both.  At least when needed, you
could use a STYLE inline on the FONT tag to state the CSS1 declaration
for it...

| <P STYLE="text-align: left; font-family: \"Times New Roman\";

Last I checked and \" was not correct ...  when was this added to the
spec, or where is it at in the spec?  I do knot that MSIE does not
support the correct way of using a ' quote.
