MSNTV - weird rendering

P: n/a
http://developer.msntv.com/Tools/MSNTVVwr.asp

The MSN TV debaucle...

I read in the CSS section of the above site (specifically, at
http://developer.msntv.com/Develop/CSS.asp) that it does not support
@import. Therefore, it should ignore all positioning, as NN4 does when it
ignores the @import rule, right? See
http://users.rcn.com/neal413/3coltest2.html for an example case.

So... why is it not degrading in the viewer? Is this a bug in the viewer,
an error in their help file, or something really stupid I'm missing? I've
written them about this, but welcome observations from you all as well.

Support for @import was added long ago, in v2.8. See

Followups set to ciwas...

Ah, their page is in error then.

So what means are at our disposal to get MSNTV to ignore positioning,
because it clearly does a piss poor job of it?

Just a Note about that page... which has errors on it: hover is NOT
supported on the current MSNTV Browser!

FYI.... MSNTV is beta testing a "New" Internet Receiver at present, and
word from the MSNTV News Groups has it that it will be upgraded to at
least IE6 levels with full CSS2 support, and is expected to be released
early next year....

Cool! A browser with support for aural CSS. That's just amazing!
Maybe computer browsers will follow suit.
