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.

I didn't think of (D), but the other 3 solutions you mentioned is also what I use.

They do have some problems:

A) is not dynamic (apart from being an ugly - but for now usefull - hack). I can't get it to work "on demand"

B) Will only work with very simple XML.

C) Any recordset of moderate size (say 25k) is much too big for a cookie.

I'll read up on (D) in the docs. Thanks! =)
