    Then provide some counterexamples. Even Internet Explorer (as far as I know, the only browser to ever be exploitable with only plain HTML) had those problems only in the late 1990s. All of the recent exploits I remember off the top of my head have been JavaScript JIT bugs.

      Just dog piling IE: it was exploitable at one time or another in every conceivable way, including a character set attack.
