I don't think you need to be HTML-Strict if that's what you're saying. HTML-Transitional is designed with your goal in mind.

Nope. Doesn't work.

Trust me, you need a crazy mix of HTML 2 and HTML 3.2 to work on the most browsers possible.

That depends on what you're doing. :-)

I use a crazy mix of browsers to test my own site, for example, including goodies the original IBM WebExplorer for OS/2 and the browser built into StarWriter in StarOffice 5.01, Xiino for PalmOS, and both Links and lynx, and HTML 4.01 Transitional seems to cut it for all of the above.
