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 referenced the bug report in my post, you can read it at: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13627>

I finally decided to Do The Right Thing and convert my site <http://www.hubick.com/> to use PNG (and XHTML :-), and all the PNG's don't show up properly. Though, according to the bug report, this bug may only happen on Windows at certain (32 bit) color depths. I haven't tried under Linux yet. The scary thing is, Nav 4 displays the page better, because at least it doesn't try to do the transparency and then fail (but it would look horrid if I tried to change the background color of the pages.
