Reporting DOM Bugs? Be Sure to Read This!
Monday November 8th, 1999
Eric Krock has a request for anyone report DOM bugs:
"Please bookmark the below URLs!!!
If the page supports IE4/5 but not HTML 4.0/W3C DOM:
If the page supports Nav4 but not HTML 4.0/W3C DOM:
If the page is breaking because of user agent detection problems:
Likewise, if you're examining a bug report in Bugzilla and realize it's caused by these issues, mark the bug INVALID. Then use the email creation templates to notify the bug reporter and the page owner of the need to upgrade. Bugs closed as INVALID in this way count half a point in the BugAThon!

Webmasters have been upset ever since the 4.x browsers hit the market because to take advantage of new features they have to write pages twice basically one for Nav one for IE just because the same code does not work on both browsers.
Developers at Mozilla have been pounded with letters from the Web Standards group and even the outside contributors like myself have been helping them by checking the browsers ability to support standard based web pages.
In the end, I think this is great. At least everyone will be able to stop blaming Netscape for the Standard problems and start pointing their fingers in M$.
