I've not been on this list long, so I hope I'm not rehashing stuff
too much.

I've been trying to get my style sheets to do something reasonable
in Netscape 4 (a lost cause, I know), and when I'd about reached
the end of my rope, I found that reordering things in my file
"helped".  Argh.

Has anyone determined exactly what's wrong with Netscape's parser
that makes it blow some kinds of declarations?  I've found moving
things from external to internal sheets often makes them "work",
but this reordering is considerably more mysterious.

I don't want to spend a lot of brainpower working around bugs in
stupid browsers, but I figured if someone had already run this
down, it could save the rest of us the trouble.
