Confused - NN4, IE3 & 4 rendering

As a newcomer to the world of CSS (apparently unlike most on this
list) I have become very confused with the rendering of CSS in the two
major Windows browsers.

I thought that CSS would provide an "easy" way to allow page
formatting - but my experiments with CSS has shown larger differences
in rendering between NN and MSIE than those awful HTML hacks we all

For example, one of the generic font attributes show up as script in
MSIE 3 but like a Garamond like type in NN 4 (I wanted a script
effect). Increasing the relative font size did little to the MSIE
rendering but blew the NN page way out of proportion. 

Q: Do you have suggestions on good books, on-line texts, etc, on how
to apply CSS? I need them badly.

All the best,

Martin S.
