Tree Closed for M13

Wednesday January 19th, 2000

The tree has closed for M13 stabilization, so we can expect to see an M13 build show up sometime within the next week or so. There has been a lot of work done over the past few weeks, and I think a lot of people will be happy with the progress they see in the final M13 binaries. Keep an eye out here for news and more of what to expect in M13.

It is my understanding that one must pay a large sum of money to become a member of the W3C. If that is the case then the group is closed. Therefore, its claims of creating "open standards" are a hypocrisy. The nature of the W3C puts the standards in the hands of its rich members rather than the general public, which is why we will be stuck with the DIV tag instead of the LAYER tag, and whatever else suits those who dictate the W3C.

To answer your question in a single sentence, "my problem with the W3C is its exclusion of the general public from the development process".

To answer your question in a less choreographed manner, "I just do not like the DIV tag".
