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.

Mozilla is not the tool for teh content provider, but for the user. The user *can* load/save/print a document in Mozilla, the content provider should not be able to do that IMO.

That attitute is exactly the reason for the imcompatibilities we have today. If the standards are not sufficient, you should enhance them /together with the other vendors/.
