Supporting NS4 [WAS: Re: Formatting lists]

NS4 is finally starting to die out....

Wired.com just redesigned their new site with complete separation
of structural content from presentation...

In NS4, the user simply gets a linearized presentation of the
content...like it would perhaps be delivered to a PDA or cell phone...

This, I think, is the way to go now with regards to NS4 support
when using CSS - if Wired can be so bold (a major commercial
content oriented site), I think we all probably can..
