How do you determine success?

Sorry to be harsh, but I almost never see the required HTML 4.0 DOCTYPE declaration at the top of Web pages and I know of no widely-deployed HTML user agent that actually tries to distinguish HTML 4.0 from HTML 3.* and do something useful based on that distinction (much less one that distinguishes the transitional and strict flavours). Certainly, the improved documentation was welcome, and HTML 4.0 was a brave attempt to codify and direct what was already industry practice. However, most specs will fail, just as most tadpoles will be eaten -- it's sad (and frustrating for those of us who volunteer so much time to help develop them), but that's the way it works.
