Before The Web, that information was given out using | only 4 bytes of data, not 30 or 40. And it appeared in the document's | meta-information -- the filename -- not in the body of the document itself, | so it was usually easier to get to. ".DOC" was (and still is) quite a | convenient way to say "This page best viewed with Microsoft Word." No it doesn't... it simply tells others what the page was designed to look best in, that doesn't mean that it won't display in another, and it doesn't mean that the author is trying to make it look bad on another browser ... but presently I will take the time to implement MSIE features, its what I use, and its what is usually simpler, and don't give Netscape enhancements any consideration... one set of "enhancements" is enough, otherwise the page looks just fine in any plain old browser.
