Hi there,

 a text that says 'requires Netscape x.x or MS Explorer x.x'. Surely
 we should do something to readdress this problem by coming up with
 a logo representing the current HTML release so that the website
 can say 'this site requires an HTML 3.x aware browser' and possibly
 provide a link to a page that lists a few of the aware browsers.

  I know that this is not really to do with the language, but I feel
 that the  awareness of the standard HTML as opposed to Netscape's or
 Microsoft's extensions is important for the readability of the
