Well, to be fair, most Netscape additions are "safe", in as they
are largely phrase-level emphasis elements, and don't butcher the
display of "Netscape-HTML" documents by non-Netscape capable browsers.

Actually I wasn't referring to any one company's tagset in particular,
just to the huge amount of text out there flavored with a random
assemblage of tags purporting to be HTML.

As for browser customization -- I actually do use it - it's very convenient
for making public presentations, using HTML as a poor-man's PowerPoint.
A nice bright blue 24 Point Helvetica font looks great on a metallic
grey background. And yes, I will even admit to using the Netscape
color tags in addition to browser font/color configuration controls!
(Yes, I too am a Netscape-aholic!)

Me too...I've never disguised the fact the their browser is the best
one around (most of the time :-) - I just find it amazing that so many
users don't take advantage of it.
