I have a test page at:


that uses absolute positioned blocks (fixed is what I'd have
preferred, but they don't seem to work in any browser I've tried.

The problem is that (when using either IE5 or NS4.61) to view
the page, when I resize my browser window the display of the
background images in my #sidebar and #main DIVS disappear until
I do a reload of the page. I'm wondering if this is a problem 
in my CSS, or if this is an inherent problem common to both 

On another test page at:


I find that use of "text-align: justify" in my #main DIV 
has some rather odd results in NS4.61, akthough IE5 works 
fine. Can anyone tell me for sure if this is a glitch in NS
or something bad in my CSS?

Note: For what it's worth, I have checked all the pages I know about
that describe the current set of "safe" CSS selectors and
properties, and found them all to be inaccurate or obsolete.
Is there a current and accurate reference somewhere?
