Sad but true Carl.

What I would do is use the W3 validator
and try to write in HTML 3.0 compliant
Try HTML 4.0 (http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_reference.asp or
http://www.loc.gov/iug/html40/) if you want.

BTW, as far as I know, HTML 4.01 had been un-officially adopted 
as the HTML version for the U.S. government plus using Bobby
(http://www.cast.org/bobby/) to validate it as Section 508
(http://section508.gov/) compliant...this is a requirement of U.S.
government web pages.

I personally check what I write (in HTML 3.0) on Netscape 7.2 and the
latest Mozilla.  If it looks Ok in Netscape, it should look in
