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.

It is not a dumb question, but it is not a question with a singular or simple answer. It could be for any one of the 4xp bugs in bugzilla <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…doit&order=Bug+Number> . Or it could be because they don't have time to qualify Mozilla for use. Trying to support multiple Mozilla versions while Mozilla was coming out every six weeks (0.x.x schedule) would be a big resource drag in a large company. With 1.0.0 that might change, but in big companies it can take weeks to qualify software for use in the enterprise. Or it could be because they want a "product" such as Netscape or Beonex rather than Mozilla, and did not like the previous Netscape 6.x versions. With the Netscape release, that might change.
