Text drawn in the copyright class in the W3C WD stylesheet [1] is illegible
from a Macintosh, in MSIE or Netscape with default settings. This is easy
to see from any Mac in the XHTML Extended Forms draft [2].

The culprit is the following line. I suggest you omit 'font-size' and use
HTML SMALL instead because (unless I am mistaken, and have misread the
advice of the best expert I know of so far) there is no pat way to make
fonts readable and smaller on a Macintosh with CSS. Please believe it, I've

                  P.copyright { font-size: smaller }
