They don't work in older versions, namely IE5, although they generally do in
5.5. Long-tail marketing supports a website having consistent presentation
across older browsers as well as newer versions. I tested margin, padding, and
border, both 4-sided and left and right only.

However, I'm closing this enhancement request, because I shouldn't have
submitted it. I remembered the general problem but forgot the specifics till
you reminded me. Reviewing HTML5's purpose again, it's clear that adding the
feature is not going to help since HTML5 isn't meant to aid compatibility with
browsers too old for this subset of CSS1 compliance.

Thanks.
