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!

I doubt that this Berst article fits the bill, but has anyone given any thought to the concept of a libel suit. In the US (and presumably other countries) a person or corporation is not free to spout out anything they wish about another company, individual or product. If facts are grossly inaccurate and damages are incurred in the marketplace, a libel suit may be warranted. IMPORTANT NOTE: I am not a lawyer, do not unveil your torches and pitchforks just on my account. Could it be inferred that when Berst and his ilk make big-banner assumptions (The Browser Wars are Over), site spurious information to back up their argument, and never seem to make public corrections, that there is legal recourse? Has anyone else seen Jesse Berst ever admit "Oops! I goofed on that one, lt me set the story straight.
