Dave Hodder writes: "CNET has a story entitled Sites bow to Microsoft's browser king covering how Mozilla and other browsers are locked out because of web builders not supporting proper standards. 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.'"

Professional web developers make far more money than I do, and I *can* code HTML and CSS by hand in a text editor, so regardless of whether it's "productive" or not, you'll understand if I just don't feel very sorry for them when someone suggests that they should throw away their broken tools.
