This site is creeping into the twenty-first century. I have begun the translating the code for all these pages to XHTML and have completely separated style from content with a <table> free, CSS layout!
Personally, I have upgraded to Microsoft's Internet Explorer version 6.0 on my home PC. Supposedly this browser supports HTML 4.01 and CSS 1.0 completely. The site should still display close to correct in WinIE5. The only major problem with the CSS columnar layout is that if the left side of the content area is longer than the body area the yellow backdrop doesn't extend to the footer. A small price to pay for the more logical and faster loading layout.
