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!

He didn't even read the link he gave:

The new components to the upgrade -- the Gecko rendering engine, along with XML, Document Object Model, HTML 4.0 and Cascading Style Sheets support -- bring Communicator up to speed with IE 5.0, almost a year after Microsoft released its upgrade.

Of course, there are technologies such as XUL and RDF that blow IE out of the water-not just 'bring it up to speed'
