I agree thoroughly with the sentiment expressed in
Netscape's "Open Standards Guarantee" of June 11, 1997 [1].

I find it highly strange, however, that the HTML source
of the document reveals <NOBR>, <LAYER> and some other
non-standard uses of HTML.  Number of validation errors
(assuming HTML 3.2) at Webtechs' Validation Service [2]: 55.
