Standards Ignored as Developers Target IE

It mentions Netscape/Mozilla standards evangelism and has some good quotes from Mitchell Baker, including the conclusion: 'What we're seeing with Web sites that are viewable only with IE is the privatization of the Web.'"

...again The problems are _not_ (!!!!!!!!!) Microsoft's Extensions, they aren't used at all! The problems are Microsofts nowhere documented "error correction", where they sometimes more guess, what you want to display, then showing what is written there and the second problem is document.all, which some morons will use forever, I guess some won't even stop using it, if the MSIE will drop it.
