Of course it does. Think about it again.
browsers are served a good style sheet via @import. Because Netscape 4
is out of the loop there is no need for a linked style sheet -
therefore, your main style sheet is totally dedicated to modern
browsers and you do not have to worry about conflicting rules in
multiple style sheets. Of course, the other bulletproof method is to
simply not give Netscape 4 a style sheet at all.
Our method allows for two discrete and autonomous style sheets: one
for modern browsers and one for Netscape 4. There are no overlaps. It
is meant for those of us who still need or want to provide minimal
styles for that old warhorse.
Does that help you to understand?
