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.
