Todd Fahrner and Chris Wilson were talking about IE4's support of alternate
media and the use of em in printing.

While you're at it, could you report the fact that @media does not work?

In fact, @-rules in general are not supported as the spec says they should.
For example,

p { color: green }
@hello ( p { color: red } }

should result in green paragraphs because @hello is undefined, and should be
ignored. IE4 shows red paragraphs. (This, BTW, means that IE4 does not
classify as a CSS1-capable browser according to the CSS1 spec!).
