That is the normal situation.  "HTML" has so many standards and different 
implementations that one can never be sure what works as specified, and 
how it looks in the presentation.

The Web survives nonetheless, because of websites like http://caniuse.com/ 
"Can I use... Compatibility tables for support of HTML5, CSS3, SVG and 
more in desktop and mobile browsers."

An alternative is to use some kind of "web framework" that does the 
fine-points for HTML/CSS generation for you, but there is probably also a 
lot of variance there.

Traditionally, I don't really understand HTML, and merely do minimalistic 
markup in a tiny fragment that is somehow known to work for me.
