If Netscape needs a powerpoint viewer, then maybe your documents (or
part of them) is powerpoint? If your documents are really HTML
(i.e. if a validator [1] says they are Ok) and your stylesheets are
really stylesheets (same for them [2]), then you should be able to
link them together like this (taken from the  <head> of a valid HTML

  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/style/raditex.css">

PS. Since you mention powerpoint, you are way of-topic for this list,
but since I havent seen much traffic here recently I answer anyway ...
