There is no such thing as most developers.  Regardless those doing 
business in global jurisdictions where wacg 2.0 is incorporated  into

Now, if a web designer remembers what the word cascading style sheets 
means, your inability to point might not  reflect what i s possible in a 
truly configured low graphics environment.
Or so that has been my personal experience.
I can say absolutely firmly that personal applies to me...which is the 
case for each individual.
