Hi Mike,

I'm not talking HTML4 and javascript for Christ's sake. I'm talking taking full advantage of W3C's implementation of CSS/DOM/etc...

That is not going to happen until the majority of browsers out there can speak the language... including IE!!!

I don't care about Konquerer, iCab, cable boxes, or PDA's... until IE gets on the ball in terms of W3C compliance the headache shall remain for large scale web developers and the sites they create.

Windows isn't going anywhere and will continue to be the dominant platform for a very long time to come. So long as IE is embedded in it... IE is the evil to be.

I understand, and fully respect, that you like NS6. But that is *not* the case with most. I'm sorry but it is just true.

And, no, it is not my purpose to tell people that they should be turned off to NS6. This keeps coming up and it's not really what I'm evenn talking about anymore.

Sure, I was shocked by the release. I found NS6 to by slow, buggy, lacking in features, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah... I knew it would be a bomb... but not that bad!

Anyways, I don't care to elaborate on what a joke I think NS6 is anymore. I've already said it thrice.

My argument is with those that think, because of NS6 or Moz, that developers now have a free pass to designing sites by strictly following the standards outlined by the W3C.

THAT IS WRONG!!
