Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

In a must-read post on IEBlog, Chris Wilson lays out some of the web standards fixes planned for IE7.

While it doesn’t hit everything we might like, and we won’t see most of it until Beta 2, it’s a pretty impressive list for a release that by all accounts is primarily about security and UI features.

Even more impressive than the contents of the list, though, is that it’s even available outside the Redmond campus. Having been through this ‘work with Microsoft’ thing once before in the late ’90s, I can assure you this sort of openness is a radical departure from the Microsoft of old and as good a reason as any for optimism that this is just the beginning, and we can expect even more and better in IE 7.5 and beyond.

Three cheers for transparency! Three cheers for openness! Three cheers for standards in IE7!
