Mozilla's XML Support Compared to Other Browsers

Tuesday May 9th, 2000

Simon St. Laurent has a new browser comparison chart at XML.com which compares the extent of XML support in the latest browsers. Mozilla compares very favorably, supporting more features on the chart than the other browsers. XSLT support is not there yet, but it's coming, thanks to the great work of Mozilla's volunteeer developers.

I'm a developer, and I don't wanna code in XSLT too. Yes, it's ugly. But following the recent debate regarding XSLT's uselessness, I figured that XSLT could be benefitial to nondevelopers.

HTML is cute, but many fancier documents are authored and rendered through Acrobats today. I think XSL + XSLT could replace PDF's (and other proprietary technologies also) with the aid of proper authoring tools. And it would be even nicer if XSL- and XSLT-enabled Mozilla suit could do that.
