I'd have to disagree with you here, or assume that you were just trying to
get a point across.  HTML is a standard developed not by Mircrosoft.  Once
it's in HTML, it will be 98% standard across browsers.  The HTML keywords
are not different from platform to platform.  If they were, everyone's page
who used FrontPage would be wacky except for people running IE.

Javascript, on the other hand, is the least compliant amoung browsers, but
the differences are small and You can create Javascript by saving a word
document to HTML

Microsoft does use proprietary code in HTML, but they appear as comments and
don't affect other browsers because of this.
