Dear friends,

There is the quite interesting situation that the browser market is more or less controlled by Microsoft's Internet Explorer
respectively some people use Netscape and Opera. When you create a website, you just need to take care of these three type of
programmes.

We publish an e-mail newsletter and we are confronted with the fact that there are hundreds of mail programmes (MS, AOL, T-Online,
...) and freemail websites (Yahoo, Hotmail, GMX, Web.de, ...). We made the experience that there are some basic rules that every
uses. But others like IBM Lotus Notes don't even know the command <table width="x">.

Why has W3C achieved standards for the internet, but (until now) no standards for e-mail that everybody uses?

Best regards from good old Europe,
