Mozilla's New 'Almost Standards' Rendering Mode

Tuesday July 9th, 2002

evolt.org 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.

Website developers? They are more lazy then MS is! MSIE's Standards mode doesn't act that much stricter then their sloppy mode, but it should be enough to break around 90% of the pages out there (esp. as is requires a given unit in CSS lenght values then). There are also still way to less people using Mozilla out there, before everybody will make their pages compatible without presure from AOL/Netscape. Get all your friends to use Mozilla (or anything based upon it), then we won't be ignored any more.
