Well worth the read, people.
Of particular interest to me was this snippet:
>Section 6.4.3 Calculating a selector's specificity
The "style" attribute now has a higher specificity than any style rule.
That's a bold statement!

Keep at it! I think your background-image corner attempts are the most
elegant of all the attempts so far. I hope you can squash all the bugs
(IE5/win kills method #3 and #4 on your site, btw).
I use inline images with the technique I discovered in April. And I
FINALLY got around to demoing it properly! (I know how you feel, Big
My method is not nearly as elegant as the background-image way, but it
has three distinct advantages at this point:
1.) it uses CSS borders
2.) it works with all the CSS2 div positioning methods
3.) it works on Moz1, Net6, Net7, IE5/win, IE5.5/win, IE6/win,
Op4/win, Op5/win, Op6/win, IE5/mac, Op5/mac
If anybody is feeling enterprising, I'd like to see Dan's method and the
8 nested divs method demoed on all the CSS2 div positioning methods.
Then it would be easier to test all the browsers.

Subject: [css-d] More IE6 text fun
The floated text with "important dates" on this page
(http://www.digitalhit.com/fest/tiff/2002/index.shtml) should end with "See
the Festival site for all the tix info you need."
When I fired up IE6 the other day, that part of the floated div was cut off.
And not just invisible like the previous problems I saw, but cut off as in
the bottom part of the letters were missing in one line, then the rest were
missing completely. Just like somebody took a razor blade to a pasted up
paper page layout. [*]
Seems to work fine in my IE6 (6.0.26 with all the available updates applied)
under W2000 at both 1024*782 and 800*600
