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!

Note that in this third-party evaluation of non-validating XML processors, the James Clark XP parser which is used by Gecko/Nav5 tied for the highest rating, five green dots, with a Sun Java entry.

The only Microsoft technology entry on this list, the DataChannel XML Java Parser, got one red star and the notation "Don't even consider using this package until its bugs are fixed." (Note that this is not the native binary XML parser in IE; that wasn't evaluated in this list.)
