Well, there’s aural stylesheets too... And what’s ‘backwards 
compatibility’, really... To me, if it works for most cases, that’s 
backwards compatible enough, even though it is not strictly spoken 
backwards compatible from a semantic point of view. But in that case you 
can just tell people to upgrade their UA :), because backwards 
compatibility isn’t a formal goal of XHTML 2.0.
