      But that's just the hack I want to avoid. For a scienticic magazine,
      IMO, it's important to use logical attributes such as headings.

      Thanks; _very_ interesting article! (although I'm only through with
      the problem section. Can't wait to get to "Solutions!). I

      That's a good start; but my clients use NS only :-((

      Hey, that's exactly what I was looking for! If I get this right, this
      checks the "user agent" (=Browser and OS) and then points to the

      I'll check that ASAP, thank You.

      And Melchior, www.alphazwirbel.net is amazing. Congratulations!
      That <pre>-trick in combination with css is completely new to me. Your
      idea? I love it.

      Cheers to You all,
