since Microsoft is not the standards body in charge of HTML, they 
aren't the best place to look for the final answer on tags, attributes, 
or their use...

neither <wbr> or <nobr> exist in HTML... at least not in 2.0, 3.2, or 
4.01... nor within XHTML 1.0...

i believe these tags were introduced by Netscape back in version 
2.0 or so, and it may still support them as late as version 4, but 
since the tags don't exist, i wouldn't expect Netscape 6 to support 

whenever looking up tags or attributes, try:

> I may end up using this one some time.  Thanks for the heads-up!
