Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Remember the bad old days of 2000-2001? Back when Netscape Communicator still had appreciable market share on most sites? If you were working with CSS layouts then you probably don’t; your brain has buried that period deep in your subonscious mind. It’s just too painful a memory to deal with.

Mine had done, anyway. And the backward-march of my hairline had slowed markedly as a result. I’d been sleeping peacefully through the night, with no wee-hours screaming about JavaScript stylesheets and double-loading. Then Eric Meyer brought it all flooding back with his post about a crash-inducing bug for IE/Win.

So it’s official, then: IE/Win has inherited Netscape 4.x’s mantle as the red-headed stepchild of the browser market.

Here’s hoping the IE team rights the ship post-haste. It’s a massive project, but if anyone can do it, it’s those guys.
