RE: Alternatives to the W3C
Hi Eliotte, [long post and answer to Dave...] Didier replies: Eliotte you made me think of something: the cost of publication and the type of thing that can be on the web. a) to test on all browsers increases publication cost or you have to find the least common denominator to publish and not to use new features. Just the minimum possible. This is a good strategy for maximum diffusion. This also create a tremendous resistance to change and thus, like I said previously, we are in big trouble with XML since the question now is: how long will it take before we have enough XML browsers so that we are not accused of being "not accessible". b)Now what about the plethora of innovation that we are appearing now, things like, desktop.com, halfbrain, etc that actually mostly work on IE because Netscape still lag seriously when we speak of DHTM. Yes Eliotte you made me think that the web will evolve at a much slower pace now. Up to now, this was not the case with the old desktop paradigm.
