Just wondering when the support for HTTP proxies will mature?

I think both back end and front end are due in the M10 period.
Um, didn't the XML standard just get rejected for being too "anti-European" or something? Doesn't that kinda pose problems for Netscape to claim "standards compliance" on XML if there is no standard and won't be for a while? Just food for thought.
#5 No, just one application of XML

The Computing Technology Industry Association ( <http://www.comptia.org/> ) has issues with the standard promoted by RosettaNet ( <http://www.rosettanet.org/> ). The RosettaNet standard is just one application of XML--in this case having to do with e-commerce.
The story was reported in the Detroit Free Press here ( <http://www.freep.com/tech/qbnews4.htm> ).
This is CompTIA's press release on the subject ( <http://www.comptia.org/newspr/19990826ec.htm> ).
XML has been a W3C recommendation since February 1998.
Just some condiments for your food for thought. :)
