The following shows up the way I would expect it to in IE, but in netscape I see nothing, nothing at all. Does anyone know how, definitively, to put an end to this madness? (okay, that was dramatic)

<style>
  #test {
    background-color:blue;
    width:400px;
    height:300px;
  }
</style>

<a href='#' id=test name=test></a>

I guess I just don't understand netscape

I don't think netscape will display an inline tag like that without content. Try adding a non-breaking space (&nbsp;) or changing it to a class and trying it on a div as well. Also make sure you put quotes around all your attribute values

<a href="#" id="test" name="test">&nbsp;</a>

WOO-HOO!

I figured it out!

You're right, netscape ignores the size tags for all except block elements... soooo, in order to make the above code display correctly in both netscape and ie...

display:block;
