I've never thought of a standard as something that required anybody to use  
it. If we all stopped using ASCII, then it would still be a standard. If I  
understand correctly, then I abide by #6 at
http://opera.answers.com/standard
I take it that you disagree?

I think the opposite of a standard is no standard. That means if I abide  
by no standard, then there will be inconsistencies.

I hope that I clarified. If anybody wants more details, then just say so.
