I remember long time ago we discussed this topic (post changed to get after 
relocation) and we concluded that it must be done so because most browser do 
not follow the standard and not doing like the browser will result in 
failure. That is probably how a bug in a well known browser become a 
de-facto standard ! Like it or not, if you don't do the same, your program 
will be accused of malfunction even if it perfectly follow the standard.
