There are a few links that indicate that the new Netscape/Mozilla will
support it properly. I don't know if it is just hot air, just thought I'd
post the press releases etc. since they're relevant to CSS et al.

http://www.idg.co.nz/nzweb/bf4e.html
http://www.mozillazine.org/
http://developer.netscape.com/software/communicator/ngl/index.html

They're all related to the new rendering engine for Netscape/Mozilla. Since
this is being developed as entirely opensource, it has a higher likelyhood
of complying with the W3C's standards.

Anyway, just thought I'd pass along the info.
