Netscape 4.x doesn't support CSS, it supports JSS (Javascript
stylesheets), but it has a parser which interprets the attributes
matching 1:1 between CSS and JSS.

Both CSS and HTML is made to degrade gracefully, that is, if somebody
uses a browser without CSS support, he'll still see the content, but
it won't look the way the web page's author intended.  Which can't be
guaranteed anyhow (for instance, my browser allows me to specify a
user stylesheets which I can use to override the author's).

So you make it work without CSS and if you'd like it to look pretty,
you CSS it.  IMHO
