Would that be fully FOLLOWS, or fully IMPLEMENTS?  Have I missed Mozilla's
Aural CSS implementation?

Mozilla and Netscape 6.01 almost fully follows DOM 2 /1, CSS 2 / 1, and HTML
4.01 transitional and strict among other doctypes. There are only a few
examples that I can think of where this is not the case, and we are working
on implementing those. As far as html tags, if its in the standard, then
Mozilla supports it.

As a student to the world of website building, I am wondering about a
fundamental question.  The w3c is an agreed upon entitiy that
maintains/monitors/develops the language of the web (html,xml, etc).  If
this is the case, why is it that all "up to date" browser programs do not
support all included "tags" for this language? Maybe I am over simplifying
this problem?

Unless you work for Microsoft, please don't make presumptions about what we
did or didn't do "deliberately".  Bugs in our CSS implementation that cause
us to fail forward compatibility tests were not intentional.
