Chapter 3. Browser Adoption of CSS > Internet Explorer 4.x

3.2. Internet Explorer 4.x

Microsoft greatly extended CSS compatibility within the initial 4.x version of Internet Explorer. This version of Internet Explorer was the first to show that a major browser vendor was serious about implementing CSS.

This version of Internet Explorer was not without its drawbacks, however. While it supported much of the background, border, font, margin, list and padding CSS element families at least partially, it could not support a number of other elements, such as display or clear/float in the Macintosh version at all. There were also some minor variances worth noting in the ways the browser implemented the same CSS elements across different operating systems. Problems implementing the text-align property have been noted, as have more general problems when implementing some basic CSS functions, such as containment, inheritance and dealing with certain length units.
