In the current implementation of IE4, when scripting
styles of individual elements, assigning styles with
an incorrect style property produces an error dialog.

I fear that future extensions to the CSS will break
IE4's implementation.  Does W3C advise for or
against this?  Would it not be wiser to simply use
a default style property when a given property is
invalid?
