What I find scary is Rick's signature block.  No matter how much W3C and 
others do, so much more to be done.

There are books, web pages, blogs full of patches, hacks, filters to 
correct for incorrect/inconsistent implementation of established 
standards.  I haven't look lately but at one time Microsoft/IE 
participated in establishing the standards, but for marketing reasons (I 
guess) never completely implement those standards and always included 
proprietary functions.
