Well, I seemed to have opened a can of worms, haven't
I. I believe several people hit it on the head with
the inline vs. block uses. If as others have said, the
Netscape rendering is the buggy version, and since 95%
of my work is done in Netscape, then know wonder I was
confused. Thanks for the corrections. Hopefully once
both browsers get in line with the specs, things will
begin to get easier for all of us.

Humblest regards,
