Yes, but I think that Jonas's suggestions are for the default rendering in
the browsers. They may change in different OSes and can be changed with a
css. Exactly as happens with <quote>d text in Netscape 6.2.3, that is
rendered indented as default.
Obviously the render with the same attributes under different OSes and
browsers must be identical.
