I saw your posting in techwr-l. Could you please explain in more detail
what you are doing? Are you talking about writing HTML so it's
presentable on any browser?

I'm currently writing HTML-based help, but am avoiding using Microsoft
extensions, Netscape extensions, or HTML 3.2 because our HTML is going
to be viewed with an HTML viewer written in Java (so you can use the
HTML viewer no matter what the platform is). The HTML viewer can only
interpret HTML 2.0.

We're pretty determined not to use a browser to present our help, but
your idea sounds interesting. I would appreciate any info you could pass
