Web Devout tidings

The queue is growing, I know

I have a growing list of e-mails I haven’t gotten to addressing yet. I apologize, but school and work have to be top priorities for me above this website, and they haven’t left me with much free time the last few weeks. I just wanted to let you guys know that your feedback hasn’t been forgotten and I hope to sit down and go through all of it as soon as I get a chunk of free time.

Within the feedback is a list of requested changes to the standards support information, as well as a recurring suggestion that I should only test browsers against the latest Candidate Recommendation or higher versions of the specifications rather than attempting to follow regressed drafts. I find myself agreeing with this suggestion and I plan to make the appropriate changes when I can. There is also a requested addition to the Opera Myths page and some things that I want to correct and expand in the Beware of XHTML article.

In the meantime, have fun with this weird but valid HTML page. It plays around with some little-known HTML features that have little or no support in today’s major web browsers.

    You don’t seem to have many comments, so I just thought that I would add one!

    The detail in your site is excellent. I also like the calm, non-partisan tone that you take in your articles. There’s no point relentlessly bagging Windows and IE (as many other authors do), when huge numbers of people use those products – and are often perfectly happy with them!

    I’ve read most of your articles & have bookmarked your site for future reference. Cheers, :-)

    Nice to see that Dave Massey describes your site as ‘discounted’ in the latest IE chat :)

    Perhaps they don’t realize exactly what features Firefox and Opera support and how literally they attempt to interpret the standards, or they just don’t want to admit that it’ll take more than a couple of years to catch up on half a decade and counting of development work in those browsers. To claim that IE7 made even close to half of the progress needed to catch up to the other browsers would be to suggest that another year of development work will bring Internet Explorer up to Firefox’s and Opera’s level, which is clearly not so. IE7 still gets numerous things wrong at fundamental levels. I’m glad to see improvement, and those improvements are indeed measurable, but Firefox and Opera have been well ahead of the game for a long time now.
