Technically you should not rely on color alone for styles anyway. 
Markup should be made so that if the page was seen in black and white 
they could still differentiate between elements based on other style 
attributes: weight, size, decoration, etc.  If you're a color-blind 
person and the page does not work right in black and white it is 
irrelevant if it works in Netscape 4.x.
