Article note: Saw this burble up in retrocomputing-specific venues the other day, a more positive "Old computers and _the way_" note: Google News stripped such that Netscape1.1 running on a potato can render it. It still amazes me how changes to HTML that were supposed to lead to _less_ specifying presentation instead lead us into the absurdly brittle locked-in-presentation behavior of the modern web (never mind the _absurd_ runtime we've sprung, that makes the horrible old Java Applet system look like a reasonable behavior).
