[css-d] God Damn Netscape

Sent by Merkey, Brett on 25 January 2002 13:01


|The short and long of Netscape 4 is that it is an accident if it handles
|CSS correctly at all. As someone noted, Netscape 4 was released before
|CSS1 was adopted as a standard. 

No, Netscape 4 has no such excuse for not supporting CSS-1. The only 
browser released before the full spec (Dec. 1996) was IE3.

Netscape 4 dev team managers made a conscious decision not to support
the W3C standards body. Follow-up decisions since the mid-1997 release
of Netscape 4 continued that policy.

Some of the Netscape chiefs got rich but the product paid the price.
