In response to Alex Hague:

The answer to your question is Netscape 6 / Mozilla, which fails to render
any site using NS4's Layers element, and the browser-sniffing javascript
used to detect the browser.
This is one of multiple reasons why it is important that HTML be kept to as
minimal a set of structural markup as possible.

"What happens then when implementations add extensions which may be included
in later standards.

Does that implementation now dictate what the next standard is, or does the
implementation have to also include support for the new standard, if it is
different to their implementation (and how likely is that to happen ?) ?"
