I don't think this is true. Firstly, this example still wasn't as good 
as I think mine could be. Secondly, it requires complex matrix 
manipulation by the author, which basically rules out

I agreed (and changed Firefox) under the assumption that little to no 
web content would be affected.

This thread was started by an author who's content was broken, so it 
seems reasonable to re-visit these assumptions.
