I know.. a large pity in my opinion.  Some browser vendors are just sooo 
thick!

Mebbe someone should put <LINK> in as a revamped HTML 3.2 command (so the 
vendors actually start using it rather than just ignoring it all the time!)

Then they'd have to include it if they wanna be known as supporting HTML 3.2
