That's it. I had a slightly more complex image than that, but it appears
IE/Win doesn't recognize a child selector descended from the body tag. I
had three fields (a set of nested divs and an h1) that I wanted this to
work with and by starting from the body>div1id>div2id I was able to exclude
at least up to IE5.5/win (haven't tried 6 yet) while IE5.x/mac and
NS-Moz/both see the child selector and act accordingly. (BTW, IE5.5 *did*
recognize and apply div1id>div2id but dropped out of the hunt when I added
body as parent.)

Thank you Craig!
