The unfortunate truth is that Netscape 4's rendering engine is very old, extremely broken and not at all compliant with W3C standards. Sites built from validated HTML and CSS usually won't work right in NS4.

You either have to rely on inline styles (font tags, single-pixel spacers) that were deprecated a long time back, or sniff the user agent and design an entirely different set of templates to play to NS4's quirks. Seeing as its a much simpler solution, is there any reason to believe most people can't just use Firebird instead?
