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!

Personally, I think it was Mr. Bersts intention to err. All he's trying do to is create hype and hoopla... which he has succeeded at.

I don't consider any place like ZDnet or CNet a reliable source for factual news or regarded opinion.

If everyone would quit feeding into such tactics then maybe they would stop such antics.

Unfortunatley, that's just wishful thinking... kinda like saying 'if everyone just cleaned up after themselves, there would be no pollution'... very true, but it will never happen.
