I'm not exactly sure of Mac Mozilla or Opera, but it breaks down like
this on our statistics:
IE6/WinXP-2000 60%
Safari/Mac-PPC 20%
Lots of other little ones 20%

And I meant to say <2% earlier. Anyway, I'm trying to do this:

And it looks fine in Mozilla/IE on PC; fine in Mac Safari, but in Mac IE
ignores the css on padding:10px. 

So again, should I even worry about it?

A spinoff of this topic could be cross-browser/OS javascript detection
and custom css pages.
