I was responding to this statement of yours, which seemed to indicate 
that you thought the font element must not be supported.  Sorry if I've 
misunderstood.

"According to the HTML 5 spec, FONT could then be non-conformant, which 
means, if I read the HTML 5 spec correctly, user agents _must not_ 
support the element."

Search this section for occurrences of "font".  This is the multipage 
version, so it shouldn't crash your browser like the single page.

Or, here's the single page W3C version.
