Bugs which are bad enough to make

An update:

If any inline style is applied, anywhere within the nested div section, on any tag, All future div tag styles are ignored, however they are applied.

 <!-- this layer will display correctly, with all positioning as in stylesheet / declaration--><div id="a…" > <div id="b…" > <a href="z.htm" style="text-decoration: none;"> </div></div><!-- this layer will not display correctly, even though it is syntaxicallyidentical to the previous layer set…All style related attributes are ignored--><div id="c" > <div id="d" > <a href="y.htm" style="text-decoration: none;"> </div></div>

Thanks to Daniel Lancelot for this addition.
