If you change the DIV rule to the following, does your page look right
in Netscape 4? I think so. (MSIE3 certainly not, and MSIE4 not quite.)

DIV {padding:1em; border:none} /* add border:none
                                  "0" is a better workaround for IMG,
                                  but "none" may fix flat color */

"XML can't be displayed directly" in MSIE3 only, so far as I know. The
other Mac HTML clients I tested do all right not knowing a file of
type text/html html is XML -- if one can overlook processing
instructions, and the XML language declaration. Maybe the Great Divide
starts when more servers are configured for the media-type text/xml xml.
