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."

You can read more about this at XMLHack, and you can also read MS's position on standards here.

yes but most people use windows. my main worry still remains-that MS wants to shut out all non-windows platforms-even Macs running IE. On the other hand, I've always supported Netscape because even though it had proprietary stuff it was always multi-platform and always promoted that idea.
