Request for a change in the CSS3 modules' default.css


Would you consider making this comment for IE/Mac OS 9 in the CSS3
default.css style sheet, or else change to em?

table.proptable td, table.proptable th {
     /* padding: 1ex; */
     border-style: solid none none dotted;
     border-width: thin;
     border-color: red;

Without the comment, on an older iMac in IE 5.1.6 in Mac OS 9.0.4,
"CSS3 module: text" [1] takes 30 seconds to load, 20 seconds to scroll
one screenful, and 15 seconds to redraw its viewport after an
application switch. Most modules aren't quite that slow. :-)

IE 5.1.6 in Mac OS 9.2.1 is much faster but would also benefit. IE
5.2.2 in Mac OS X seems okay without the change (I don't use it enough
yet to be sure).

Here are the links I used to figure this out in case they help. 9 of
the 14 released modules are affected.
