Web Standards Project Blasts IE

Monday April 10th, 2000

Luke writes, "The Web Standards Project posted a press release pointing out (and frowning upon) Internet Explorer 5.5's poor standards support. IE still does not fully support CSS1 or HTML 4, and has very poor support for DOM level 1 compared to Mozilla, which is currently very close to full support with only minor bugs left."

Hmm. Sounded to me like "for the Internet," they value compatibility with older versions of IE over compliance with standards.

"For the Intranet," it's more important that they release innovative and new features that their customers (read: businesses) want than fixing bugs (read: failure to comply with standards they helped create).

I think we're screwed so far as WinIE's compliance with standards goes. :b
