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.

"Html was never meant to make a document LOOK a certain way, or ACT a certain way."

I think the use of HTML is more important than its intended use.

"How would a marquee look on a cell phone?"

I think it would look like black text scrolling across a gray screen.

"To a blind person?"

I tried to determine why you would ask me how something would look to a blind person and I failed. I finally determined that you must think marquee should not exist because blind people cannot see scrolling text. Does this mean pictures and words should also be removed from webpages?

"Marquee has no place in html."

Maybe it does not have a place to a blind person but there are people with vision. Some of them use the Internet too.
