The WDG Reference section

The WDG's reference section offers background information and technical specifications on HTML authoring. Its main purpose is not to provide browser-specific "hacks", or workarounds for browser bugs or limitations, but to give the correct way to do it. In cases where this may conflict with browsers, there will be a note explaining this.
