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.

Most (90% - see Sturgeon's law) software developers suffer from two of the seven deadly sins: Sloth - It takes another five minutes to make a site compliant with standards (or to write decent code). Pride - If somone wants to use MY software or buy MY products, they damn well better have version X of this OS and version Y of that app and version Z of that plugin!

Web developers (I hate to call them that, most are a bunch of monkeys in front of typewriters) could spend an afternoon learning what they need to know, and build sites that work much better. They spend more time whinging than it would take to learn their craft.

This is not ment as a tiraid against the "unwashed masses," it is pointed towards those that should know better.
