The only problem with this approach is that this will bite other
browsers that have started supporting the so-called "Netscape
extensions". More than one person has coded the Netscape stuff into
their pages because it gives the author more flexibility than the
standard 1.0/2.0 standards. And there aren't many browsers out there
yet that support 3.0.
