Once upon a time Chris P. Sharp shaped the electrons to say...

>Netscape just adds a narrow horiz. rule in its place.
>Also the <banner>...stuff...</banner> doesn't seem to work either. I suppose

>Has anyone else found the same incompatibilities?

Since "HTML 3.0" is not standard (and doesn't even exist as an entity
anymore) none of the major browsers have implimented all of the suggestions.

I believe *most* of the HTML 3.0 suggestions are unimplimented in NS, M$IE,
and Mosaic at this time.  You'll probably see creeping acceptance over time.
