Hi John,

Is there a page in your sites that explains how to use your site?. I have one.
When people want to read this page they know they can resize the pagefonts, how
acronyms and abbr are showed in some browsers etc. They can find links to the
HTML and CSS specs and WCAG-guidelines.
Besites I published all the stylesheets in my sites. So visitors can see how to
create their own one for using in their browser..  To tell the visitors this, is
in my eyes a sort of obligation.
But I think the world is only becoming better when we share all the knowledge we
have.. so everybody has benefit of it..

From the Mozilla wishlist I know some people love Netscape 4.7. Not because of
the browser, but e.g for mailissues that cannot be found in any other better
css-browser. Or simply because they don't want to upgrade for every new issue.
