"The DOM Working Group is currenlty working on requirements for DOM Level 3. They will be available for public eview during April 2000."

Ahh, so it should exist soon then. Well, I guess that it means that it doesn't exist YET. Quit while you're behind.

"A great deal of Mozilla's behaviour will be "non-standards-compliant" within, say, two years. Not because Mozilla fails *now*, but because the standarization process will have advanced *then*."

Of course. Just like IE3 is useless today. Anyone with a brain in their head can see this. Two years from now, we'll be running NS 8.0, or Moz 3.

You're really making no headway. You're as blind as MS, refusing to admit that the sun is already up when it's noon.
