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 have posted a short reply. While I do not contribute to Mozilla project, I am quite interested in XML technologies (<http://zvon.vscht.cz/Zvon…von/zvonTutorials_en.html>) and at the moment the official Mozilla 1.0 is released I will definitively drink a few beers to celebrate, but only if standard support is 100%, from my point it means CSS1, CSS2, HTML 4.0, XML 1.0 , XSLT 1.0 (it should become a W3C recommendation in a few days). Try the link above to see why XSLT is so important.
