Actually, it's not my page that's under discussion here. I have no web
page. The page under discussion was (I think?) www.aeoline.biz. It could
be that the tags on the page in question were not closed, but I do still
think that old borwsers are at fault, as well.
My roommte is a webmaster for a fairly good-sized robotics firm, and most
of the rant that I posted was taken from something that he's been
complaining about a lot this past while; he's been getting lots of
complaints from people using Netscape 4, and hardly feels it necessary to
make his pages compliant for people using out-dated software, especially
when they amount to less than 4% of traffic.
