Although these posts are better directed at web design and web development
mailing list or discussions groups, I'll give a quick answer. Internet
Explorer 4.0+ implements a fair number of the CSS properties and values,
Netscape much less so. If you are really interested in using CSS in the
upcoming Mozilla Gecko browser (which will probably form the Netscape 5.0
rendering engine), take a look at http://www.mozilla.org.
