Backward compatibility on the web is no longer. I could change those pages to work in Gecko by rewriting to use mozmm as I have in http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/Font/fonts-ptdemo.html and http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/dpi-screen-window.html but AFAIK there is neither standard nor proprietary equivalents for Opera, IE and/or Webkit to make them work regardless of UA.
