I don't think it's possible to get rounded corners, unless you use either
images or Flash.

I doubt that anyone here is hoping for a demonstration that works
flawlessly in Netscape 4.  Further, I hope that's the case.

You'd have to give me a damned good reason (such as the one made of
little slips of paper printed with a portrait of B. Franklin in a green
duotone, which does nicely *grin*) to not default to a presentation that
degrades in some obvious way for the benefit of Netscape 4 users.

When I look at it, left and right borders show up.  I'm using IE5.5/Win
btw.

I am presently pondering the approach that I want to take...

That said, you've helped me out as I see it, since a demonstration has in
fact been made - even though I'm gonna write my markup from scratch.
Thanks!
