   No, that's NOT what he meant. He meant exactly what he said. If 
Netscape, at this point the most popular graphics browser, isn't going to 
support the HTML 3.0 standards which we are attampting to set up, then 
how will we ever get any standards. Are we just waisting our time? 
Netscape seems to have conveniently ignored certain HTML tags which they 
don't want to use. They talk all sweet and innocent "Netscape remains 
committed to supporting HTML 3.0" But we all know that that's bullshit.
The question is: will there ever really be a standard which all browsers 
follow?
