I read this article and was surprised at how even handed Webreference were. It is so bad to see IE5 being heralded as the way to be web standards compliant so I thought it a breath o fresh air when IE5s flaws were pointed out.

Mind you, Mozilla really needs to get XSLT support hooked up. M$ are really stealing a march on Moz because of this.

Also, as I think Adam Locke said in the XSLT newsgroup, a "beautifying" stylesheet for XML would be great in Mozilla.

Do we actually have any hard-and-fast specification for XSLT (even a partial one). I don't want to repeat Netscape's previous mistake with layers. Everything that is implemented should stay as long as possible.

As far as I know, XSLT is a W3C Recommendation now. Now, XSLT isn't all of XSL, which ISN'T a Recommendation yet.

One of the greatest features of Netscape 4.5+ in my opinion was Roaming Access. I really miss not having it available in the Mozilla builds ... does anyone know if this will be included in Mozilla or Netscape 5???

I would like to see it in there too. Not so much the builds but in the final release.
