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.

Even if you carried out all of your sadistic fantasies of beating me with mythical sticks, I would still be right. Mozilla guys probably would not hit me with a clue-stick unless the W3C told them they were allowed to do this. That would require a "standard" to be produced for clue-sticks. Then they would say there must be a general rule to apply to general sticks in the future. After forming Stick Markup Language, they would have to find a way to handle sticks that do not have a stick type definition. They would also have to create accessibility rules for people unable to handle normal clues, and extendable stick language for people using new forms of clues. After drafting StML and XStML, all of this would result in a "standard" that makes all current sticks unusable. I think I would be safe.
