With people who have been writing scripts for a long time this is often
a matter of "I've tried this once, it didn't work well, so I work around
it ever since", which these days often translates to "I use a library."
Internet Explorer has indeed historically not supported these, but I'd
not be surprised if Netscape Navigator 4 did not, either, for instance.
