Preparing Your Site for Navigator 5.0

Wednesday November 24th, 1999

Shelley Powers of inquiry.com has written an informative article on preparing your DHTML website for compatibility with Navigator 5.0 and the DOM standard. This one is definitely worth the read if you're interested in working to the DOM spec, but would like to keep a measure of backwards compatibility with older browsers.

Look at AOL 5.0 (I used a friend's computer, not mine :). Is it a great leap forward? Nope, except for using IE 5.0.

If AOL really cares about Netscape, they would have delayed AOL 5.0 until NGLayout was ready, and used that instead of IE.

AOL can terminate their agreement with MS at any time now, but they won't until 2001, according to some news.com article.

And Steve Case, AOL CEO, virtually _defends_ Microsoft by saying Government intervention in the computer and Internet industry is bad!!!! (see <http://news.cnet.com/news…-1435591.html?tag=st.cn.1>. )

So those who think AOL will save Netscape, pull your head out of your arse. Netscape is doomed. Mozilla is NOT.
