4th generation browsers are indeed a problem.

well, if you do web design for fun - you should Say Goodbuy to htis client.
If you work for money - you need to follow.

I found (personal opinion) that it's better to get money in some business, 
sometimes not related to IT or Web at all, and to re-invest those money in 
your hobby and volunteer work.
I hardly believe that I could buy a car I drive nowdays if I was doing web 
design :-)

|   Is this group mostly theoretical?

I would say that www-style is less teoretical than www-dom and more 
teoretical than www-html. 
Everything is *relative* in this world :-)
But indeed primary focus of ww-style ML is to discuss W3C CSS specs, not 
day-to-day design issues. Hopefully we do not ignore those issues and discuss 
them too.

|   best,
