There isn't anything NS4-specific (server-push isn't even NS4 specific,
Mozilla and NS7 can do it, too).  But there are eye candy markups that NS4
can understand that aren't valid 4.01 strict (like the FONT tags for
example).  Remove the font tags and everything will be black on white in
your default font on NS4, regardless of the colors/fonts in your CSS.  That
sort of thing.
