WebTV has now made their own 'contributions' to the world of HTML tags
and attributes:

<a nocolor selected>
<audioscope align border gain height leftcolor leftoffset maxlevel
rightcolor rightoffset width>
<body credits fontsize hspace instructions logo nohtilebg novtilebg vspace
xspeed yspeed>
<font effect transparency>
<hr invertborder>
<img ani animateonselect anistartx anistarty loop reload selected
<input action noargs nohighlight submitform width>
<input type=button usestyle>
<input type=hidden autosubmit>
<input type=image loop nocursor onclick>
<input type=reset borderimage>
<input type=submit borderimage useform usestyle>
<input type=text allcaps autoactivate autocaps bgcolor borderimage cursor

<limittext size value width>

<sidebar align width>

<tr transparency>

My stats put them as the #4 brand of browser now (although still under
1%) - and climbing rapidly. I rather expect it to explode post-Christmas.
