[WEB4LIB] Problems with Mozilla 1.7

I was going to recommend that you start by giving the page a valid
Doctype. Without it, I was guessing that Mozilla was kicking into a
non-standard mode and the nested DIVs were causing the display problem.
Loaded remotely, in a separate tab, it shows the same display problem.
But, oddly enough, when loaded locally from my Desktop, it displays just
fine. Strange.

One thing you might try is re-arranging the order of the style sheets so
that the @import is listed first before the linked file. Also, it's not
clear to me why you have these two separate stylesheets. Although the file
names imply that one is intended for Netscape 4, the two are almost
identical and many of the styles look like they would choke NS4. I'm
wondering if you would have better luck by getting rid of one of the style
sheets or replacing the NS4-friendly stylesheet with one that only has
rules that NS4 can process. 

Let me know if any of those suggestions helped.
