And what you tell someone to do on a webpage has little impact and even
less relevance to this discussion. You and I know which browser sucks.
We can *try* to enlighten others, but we cannot make them.

I believe it would be short-sighted to make the book appear broken in
the most widely used defacto standard browser. It doesn't matter that
the browser is broken. From Joe User's perspective the book is broken,
and that is not good. I just don't think we should take the snobbish
mindset of "Our way is right and everyone else *must* conform to our
ways or leave until they do."
