Mozilla Dispenses with Old, Proprietary DOM

Thanks to Kovu for the news.

"Of course, this means we'll all lose the benefit of the <blink> tag .... awww I'll *really* miss that annoying piece of sh**...."

Nobody has said anything about abandoning blink. If you look in ua.css, you will see that the blink tag has a declaration. All that needs to be done is hook it up to the layout engine.

Blink will be supported, as it is a CSS1 standard.

When blink is functional, put this line in ua.css


for an instant headache.

Blink is dead, long live blink
