make a note of this somewhere. 
Although I understand the need to continue the quest for new and improved
HTML code, consider that a majority of the commercial web sites out there
must design for different versions of the same browsers (specifically
Netscape and IE). Creating new standards is great, but making those new
standards while removing the old ones is not a good idea. Somewhere someone
is not going to upgrade to Netscape 4.07 when their version of 3.01 is
working fine. Isn't there a way to improve the code while leaving the
existing source active for the earlier browser versions?
Seems a bit tyrannical otherwise don't you think? Just an opinion.
