Given some of the css declarations, I wasn't surprised to see that
Communicator 4.04 rendered poorly in all of the samples Gayle
provided. Since, apparently, the decision has been made to exclude
Netscape via @import, perhaps you should mention that the set of Core
Style Sheets is presented for Win'95 IE 4. 

If no compromise(1) is possible, given the various buggy
implementations extant, could you at least consider commenting the
problematic declarations in the set, so that potential users would be
aware of the implications of using those declarations?

(1) A possible compromise might be a set of Core Style Sheets with the
'problematic' declarations commented out or 'worked around', when
possible.
