Better check your numbers. Netscape 2.0 is used by about 30 - 35% of
the _total_ Web population (see "Web Trends" at www.interse.com). The
next highest browser is Netscape 1.1, at 45 - 50% more of the _total_
Web population. That's a lot of fancy (Netscape 1.1) and ultra-fancy
(Netscape 2.0) pages viewable by about 80% of the entire market. That's small?
In addition, MicroSoft's ;) Internet Explorer is reasonably compatible with
Netscape. That takes me to 85% without even blinking. The next few browsers
(AOL, Mosaic) don't munch out on tables. That takes me past 90%.
I agree that more would be 'nice'. And I agree that some browsers munch out
on some tags. These browsers maintain less than 10% of the market, total.
And I'm the only one maintaining my Web site.
