Unfortunately, there are hundreds of already deployed tools, including
search engines, robots, HTML editors and validators that CANNOT deal with
many of the pages that are already on the web. Netscape and MSIE are not the
only important Internet Applications. So it is not sufficient to standardize
the mess that already exists. We must make a better standard and those that
care about having their documents properly indexed will adhere to the better
