That was an incomplete statement on my part.  I should have written:

At least one very common browser (Internet Explorer, 5 and 6 for Windows)
implements CSS 2 section 6.4.4 "Precedence of non-CSS presentational hints"
(see <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/cascade.html#q12>) properly.

I believe those versions implement all of section 6.4 "The Cascade"
(see <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/cascade.html#cascade>) properly;
but I don't recall verifying that in detail, so I'm not certain.
