Sorry to sound like a broken record, but content negotiation *will* take
care of this. If this is a part of HTML 3.0, then an HTML 3.0->HTML 2.0
converter in the server will make this transparant, though this
conversion would have to be done at access time instead of beforehand,
just like - surprise! - NCSA-style server-side includes.

Legal problems... could you elaborate?
