Nonsense.  It happens, but not "virtually everyone" does it.

I suggest a visit to google groups.  Substitute
foo.cgi?chap=1&sect=2
in the above, and you'll find people asking why it doesn't work -
precisely because browsers get it right.  And that's regarding
mainstream browsers such as those of Microsoft, Mozilla, KDE/Apple
and Opera, as well as specialist and minority browsers.
