Well, I'm fairly new to CSS but I feel I understand them well enough to implement them efficiently into a webpage.  Problem is I ran into this problem.

This is the problematic area. . .

<HTML>
<HEAD>
  <STYLE TYPE="text/css">
  <!--
    .tblack {color: #FFFFFF;
        font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
	font-size: 18pt;
	background-color: #000000}
  -->
  </STYLE>
</HEAD>

<BODY>

<!-- Top Table -->
<TABLE WIDTH="100%" BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0>

<TR CLASS="tblack">
  <TD WIDTH=9>
    <IMG SRC="images/pix.gif" WIDTH=9 HEIGHT=1><BR>
  </TD>
  <TD WIDTH=15 VALIGN="MIDDLE">
    <IMG SRC="images/pix.gif" WIDTH=15 HEIGHT=1>
  </TD>
  <TD WIDTH=184>
    <IMG SRC="images/pix.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1>
  </TD>
  <TD ALIGN="RIGHT" WIDTH="100%">
    <IMG SRC="images/pix.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=4><BR><NOBR>
    <A NAME="top">keymo.cjb.net</A>
    <IMG SRC="images/pix.gif" WIDTH=10 HEIGHT=1></NOBR>
    </TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>
</HTML>

Ayway, sorry if that's too expreme.  (me posting that much)

Well.  This code works just great in IE 5.0 (and i'll assume 4.0 as well) but it has problems in Netscape 4.08.

The code should have produced a black strip along the top with the word "keymo.cjb.net" in white 18pt but it doesn't.  It produces the black bar but leaves the text in black as well in the "default" font size.

As far as I know, I'm not using any IE specific style sheet so I don't understand why it's not working.

Any help would be appreciated.  
Hope everyone's having a good holday season.

later
keymo
