Details

If you examine the URL shown above, you will notice that it's a page that uses
style sheets.  On the page, there is a table with two columns.  The text in the
first column does not display on the screen-- it shows up black, which is the
color of the background.  That text in the first column always shows up as
black.
paulej@acm.org : I can see the problem as you describe it when using
Netscape 4.7, but the page displays without the error when using
Mozilla (WinNT Dec10 nightly).

 This bug system is not the place to file bugs on the 4.x
codebase. You can submit bugs for currently released Navigator and
Communicator at http://help.netscape.com/forms/bug-client.html

 However, this bug is very well-known and here is the workaround:
Netscape 4.x has problems when mixing CSS with TABLES. To be sure that
the TABLES get the background color, in your paulej.css file, change:

BODY                                    |BODY, TH, TD
{					|{
 background-color: #000000;		| background-color: #000000;
 color: white;				| color: white;
 font-family: "Times New Roman", serif; | font-family: "Times New Roman", serif;
}                                       |}

That is, set the CSS for TD and TH to match BODY.
