Greetings,

I'm encountering problems with what I've come to believe are Microsoft
IE-4 only CSS definitions when I use ht://Dig on a site I'm administering.

style.htm

on this site is as follows:

<style type="text/css">

.yllwfont {color:#FFFF33}
.leftnav { color: white;}
.leftbig { color: #FFFF00;}
.pagenow { color: #F7EB82;}
.zdcolor { color: #FFFF82;}
.nav { color: #F7EB82;}

A:link { color: #2222AA;}
A:visited { color: #540C51;}
A:active { color: #CA0000;}
A:hover {color: #A32525;}

</style>

the last four lines appear in the search result descriptions unless
style.htm is moved and a empty file is substituted in it's place (*cheasy*
cheat, but it works) durring the dig.

I'm scouring the CSS info on the web and have been through the ht://Dig
docs and haven't found a good way to deal with this Microsoft induced
headache. Is there any filtering in ht://Dig to deal with specific code
when added to an html page so that ht://Dig ignores it? Anyone have any
good ideas on how to handle this?

Please send ideas and M's to FR to the email below.

best,
