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!
#27 Not a smart move.

"We are going to break compatibility with all previous products. It is the user's problem." This kind of thing is exactly what's turned me off of Java. And remember Commodore? Others' suggestion to support a wider range of (non-)standards is good. Get that "Bad HTML" light blinking, sure, but make the browser useful on pages that work for NS 4.x and MSIE. If you don't, Mozilla will just become "that screwed-up browser that shows pages wrong."
