It's amazing to find more syntax being supported by these browsers
each day. For instance, when I converted a MSWord document into text only
form today, was shocked to see netscape 1.0 correctly interpreting octal
codes like \225, \227 etc as bullets, regd & copyright symbols.

Can anyone supply me a pointer to the exact set of such symbols
supported by these browsers? Of particular interest are Mosaic & netscape
