Loosely, 'line-height' and "vertical-align:baseline" (on body,
headings, and table cell elements at minimum) caused the overlapped
text, table running out the viewport, and the seemingly blank pages in
MSIE 4.0a Mac. Cutting those rules from the four Composition modules
[1] might be drastic, but that, or cutting Composition entirely, fixed
at least all the examples given before.

[By the way, although some of the output was similar, in that the
vertical scroll was broken, or a page looked blank, this is a different
MSIE4-Mac workaround from the one for the last CSS1 WD stylesheet, which
had a problem with double DIVs, and the fix for the CSS2 PR stylesheet,
which had a problem with "list-style:none".]

[1] filenames: 1_comp.css, 2_comp.css, 3_comp.css, and 4_comp.css
