Mozilla Now Supports All CSS1 Properties!

Thursday April 29th, 1999

David Baron, long on the scene as a champion of a proper CSS1 implementation and one of the most prolific bug-report contributors at Bugzilla has great news on CSS1 in Mozilla (and he'd be the one to know).

"The new layout engine now supports all CSS1 properties. Troy Chevalier implemented the last property, background-attachment, earlier this week. Some properties are still buggy, and one selector (the visited pseudo-class) isn't yet implemented. However, this is probably the most complete implementation of CSS1 so far, and the bug list is consistently getting shorter."

Um, I don't want to be a dick (and I think all the developers rightly deserve alot of praise for their efforts towards making a compliant browser), but what is this sh*t about supporting all the properties when some of the property support is buggy?!? It wasn't that long ago that everyone was trash-talkin MS about claiming CSS compliance and how the phrase was spoken: "20% non-buggy implementation is better than 80% buggy implementation". I for one totally agree with that statement and you guys are foolling yourselves if you are going to say "Mozilla now supports all CSS1 properties!" if some of the properties are still buggy. I think the celebration is a bit early, and I'm sorry for being the dickhead that has to point this out.
