The issue was whether HTML 4.0 is a success, and the ease with which HTML 4.0 documents can be created which implementations can't display correctly is certainly key to analyzing that.

Are you really contesting the popularly accepted notion that modern browsers support a greater percentage of HTML 3.2 than of HTML 4.0? While I've never seen a quantitative analysis proving this (nor have I any desire to undertake it myself), my experience authoring HTML certainly suggests it is the case. Your statement above flies in the face of this conventional wisdom.
