HTML 4.01 Now Recommendation

Friday August 27th, 1999

Nicholas Cull writes, "The World Wide Web Consortium has produced HTML 4.01 as a proposed recommendation. This clarifies and tidies up many issues from the HTML 4.0 specification, and prepares the way for XHTML 1.0.

This may involve some (fairly minor) changes to Mozilla, since among other things, it also comes with new Document Type Definitions for the three flavours (transitional, frameset and strict).

The document is in a review stage until 22 September 1999."

Currently Mozilla treats Strict and Transitional identically. However, the plan is to make the Strict DTD invoke "standard" mode, while everything else invokes "quirks" mode for the rendering engine.

See bug 1312 -- <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1312> -- for details.
