Sorry, Peter, if I've confused you.
 "current practice" is HTML, sure, which has been
divided into two levels, level 1 being current practice without forms,
level 2 with forms.

So Mosaic and Lynx and MacWeb are level 2 compliant,
the line mode browser is level 1 compliant.

I see no reason why changes cannot be

The thing we were at one time calling HTML2 is now called HTMLPlus.
Iff it can be made backward compatible it'll be HTML level 3,
otherwise it will be HTMLplus level 3.
