Jesse Berst Says that Communicator Won't Support XML!!!

Wednesday November 10th, 1999

Joel Caris writes in with the latest Berst burst of wisdom. Jesse Berst's new article at ZDNet's AnchorDesk is filled with such pearls as, "It now expects to ship beta of the 5.0 version of its browser suite next month... [a]nd without support for key Web technologies such as XML that IT managers and Web developers can get from IE."

Damn. And I was under the impression that the entire Mozilla application required XML to power its user-interface, and that it's XML support throughout the application was unparalleled. Silly me.

Be sure to vote in the poll on the article's page!

Libel cases are hard to win in the USA, you have to be able to prove intended malice. In the UK however, i think damaged reputation/lost profits are enough to win a case, regardless of intent. So the question now becomes, how does international law apply to the internet? Since anyone in the world can read the article, could Mozilla take ZDNet to court in London? Like you, i'm not a lawyer, so i have no clue. It'd be pretty sweet if they could, though...
