I due course all Web browsers will have to implement style
sheets. There's simply no way around it. In due course all web
browsers will have to implement a way a scheme that will let users

HTML 3.0 is not the final solution. And adding arbitrary tags to HTML
2.0 or 3.0 is definitely *not* the final solution.
