Mozilla's New 'Almost Standards' Rendering Mode

Tuesday July 9th, 2002 has an article about Mozilla's new 'almost standards' mode. This new rendering mode joins the existing standards compliance and quirks modes and should mean that more pages work correctly in Mozilla. The article describes the differences between 'almost standards' and standards compliance mode and lists the DOCTYPEs that trigger the new rendering method.

Thanks to Blogzilla for the link.

i really like IE feature when it tells you there's something wrong with the script. u know, it displays /!\ icon.

this kinda feedback from the browser is really helpful. i think if this browser reported about broken scripts (in addition to printing errors to javacript console) and broken html in a similar way, it would be a big step towards forcing people to write html pages that comply to w3c standards. don't you think so? by showing these icons, mozilla would be showing clearly that this html/javascript is bad.

it would also save time for web developers. you wouldn't need to validate your html that often. i'm sure the majority of web developer don't validate their htmls at all.
