FAQ #12

As noted here, there seems to be an issue with Windows 98, IE6 and CSS regarding the order of the font override and body overrides. Specifically, one had to have the overrides in this order when using that combination:

<style type="text/css">
body, html, td, font, div, p {
font-family: "Century Gothic", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12pt;
body {
background-image: url(;
background-attachment: fixed;

I have determined (via testing) that this is due to the html element in the font override.

However, as I noted (here) to Emma, this is rather unnecessary, since people who create styles (even most basic users) know to put text (content) inside the <body> tag and not just the <html>; I also believe doing otherwise is invalid HTML.

I'm therefore proposing that the html element be removed from the font override in the FAQ.
