Hi -

Minor things you might try:

- Make sure FONT-FAMILY is always the last property specified. I remember
having some problems (but I forget with which browser) if FONT-FAMILY
wasn't last.

- Avoid hyphens in class names. I don't know if that's a bug, but it's
worth trying just in case.  :-)

- Add the attribute TYPE="text/css" to your <STYLE> tag.

Then again, none of these things might be the cause of your problems. Let
us know what you find out!
