NON-DELIVERY of: Netscape 4.0b5 stylesheet limitation

Hi there,

yesterday I discovered that Netscape Communicator allows stylesheets
only to be loaded from the server the html-page was loaded from, in
any other case it produces a "JavaScript Error" (???) and doesn't
apply the CSS stylesheet. I'm a friend of security, but I can't see
any reason why a stylesheet could be a security risk! For me this
means a great limitation, as we have many web-servers that should use
the same stylesheet loaded from one reference location.
