We seem to have differing views on what a web developer cares about. Being one and knowing several personally, I like to think mine is far more accurate.

Modern standards compliance is the Holy Grail, Bruce. Can you say HOLY GRAIL? I knew that you could.

The people that make the web have been bitching about non-compliance for years.. this is virtually an entire era of human history in net-years. What have they been asking for all that time?

Compliance. Compliance. Compliance.

You think no one's going to care now that we have it? You think no one's going to use it if we say "your browser is broken, use this one or else"? Do you think that the entire web is created by soulless drones sucking at some company's teat?

WAKE UP.

Indeed.
