Is that really a "will work", or more of a "should work"?
My not-extensive experience in writing CSS is that
different browsers support different subsets of CSS1, let
alone CSS2.  I found it hard to have one stylesheet that
worked as it should in all browsers.

Dave, if you are willing to put up some test pages on your
site, we could look at them with various browsers
to see what works.
