what about css files that are added via the site preferences preference pane? Those are not working for me in beta 4.

We've fixed this bug for the next release. (And yes, it also applies to local CSS files loaded using site preferences.)

We're hoping to release the final version of 5.5 next week, so we're expecting this to be our final public beta release. We know that there are still a few features missing that we used to have in OmniWeb 5.1, but overall 5.5 is such a big improvement over 5.1 that we think it's time to encourage all our customers to start using it. (After this final beta, that is!)

Release notes for beta 4 follow. Enjoy!

We know there are bugs in 5.5 still and releasing 5.5 doesn't mean that we're not going to be working on them it just means that we feel this release is better than 5.1.3.

We wont be discontinuing work on OmniWeb of course. We're already gearing up to start in on 5.5.1 which will have updates to WebKit (which will fix lots of problems) and of course more bug fixes.

Well, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. So far I've been putting up with the quirks in 5.5 with me assuming they would get fixed. Honestly, half the reason I use OW is gone. I will probably go back to 5.1 for work stuff, and just use Safari for my general surfing.

Yeah this is still working fine for me as well. Most of the time, I view pages locally via Apache (meaning I_m doing an H_T_T_P request from localhost, not just opening the file directly), but I also just tried opening an HTML file directly and the styles were mostly intact. I noticed the text size is different when I open the file directly instead of through Apache, but I haven_t got time to investigate that at the moment. In any case, I can at least say that the majority of the styles looked correct when opening the file directly.
