Given that Netscape 2.0 has been responsible for a total of 0% of the hits
on the WHATWG site today, I really don't think that lack of Netscape 2.0
compatibility in this demo is of particularily great importance.

Netscape 2.0 is not on the Web anymore, at least not in numbers sufficient
for it to be taken into consideration in a demo like this.

On the plus side, if the only problem you could find with the script was
that it doesn't work in an obsolete browser that not only doesn't support
the relevant Web standards, but in fact was released before the relevant
standards committees were even formed, then I think that is praise enough.
