FWIW I am seeing my accessors split evenly into quarters: NN3.0 and IE3.0,
NN4.0 and IE4.0. The is good because it means two-thirds of the visitors to
my site have CSS browsers. It's also bad because two out of three of those
browsers are severely CSS-challenged.

I tested the print media stylsheet in IE4.0 and it seemed to work well.
They could at least add a linked print media style sheet. But if they use
tables for layout, it does not matter too much since they could only change
colors and fonts. If they had positioning or multi-column available, they
could simplify the whole page instead.
