Netscape 7 and clipping

Posts: n/a
Netscape doesn't appear to suport teh stylesheet clip attribute. Is
there a workaround?

#f_cw1 { position: absolute; top: 40px; left: -280px; z-index: 14; clip:
rect (0 auto auto 280); }

The above is a typical line from the stylesheet in question.

the text

"In CSS2, the only valid <shape> value is: rect (<top> <right
<bottom> <left>)"

appears. This clearly indicates that white space is permitted (an
perhaps required)
between "rect" and the open parenthesis "(". However, Netscape 7.
does not permit
white space here, and a note at

from Thomas 'PointedEars' Lahn

"It needs to be `clip:rect(0 auto auto 280px)' (without whitespac
the `rect' ... "

also indicates that white space is not permitted. Could the W3C pleas
rule on
this and indicate whether white space between "rect" and the ope
is (a) required, (b) optional, or (c) disallowed. If (c), could
please ask
that a future revision change this to (b) [optional]
