Really? That would be great, but I think you are exaggerating.

For example, as far as I know, none of the "alternative" browsers
implement ANY of the provisions for interactive graphical input
specified by the standards -- a fundamental limitation. There are
at least 3 to choose from:

-- INPUTs of type "image" (equivalent to HTML+ "submit")

HTML+ DTD draft 21 Mar 1994:
-- INPUTs of type "submit" with a SRC attribute
-- INPUTs of type "scribble"

I am certainly glad to see your enthusiasm for the standards, and
look forward to continued improvements in compliance.
