You're right -- "alternative" is too vague a word.  What I  
unfortunately have to think about as a document provider is the  
percentage of users trying to browse my server with a particular  
client.  Ideally, it wouldn't make any difference.  But at the  
present time it's a problem for documents that need to use features  
from HTML+.  For example: (William M. Perry) writes:

As of version 2.4, X Mosaic still does not support the HTML+ synonym  
for the "image" input ("submit" with a SRC).  On the other hand, you  
refuse to make the older syntax available.  It's not really so  
important who is "right" -- it's the disagreements themselves that  
are the problem.
