   Of course you realize how absurd that is. Being able to tell the
browser how much space to put above and below paragraphs and headlines is
one of THE fundamental features of Style Sheets, just as it is in
typesetting programs like QuarkXPress. If the browser ignores my
specifications, what's the point in using Style Sheets?
   Any idea WHEN MSIE will get around to supporting this basic feature?

      This life is a test. It is only a test. Had this been an
      actual life, you would have received further instructions
      on where to go and what to do.
