Alternatives to the W3C (was Re: Alternatives to the W3C)
If I may stray off-topic for a second, I'd like to second the view that
a Good Idea supported by Running Code is probably the most workable
alternative to the W3C standards slowgress; it's undoubtedly more
effective than mailing list flame wars. But I digress, so back to the
main point of this thread ...

http://www.TheCounter.com/stats/1999/December/browser.html

In brief: IE5.x 41%, IE4.x 36%, NS4.x 17%, everything else 1% or less.
Based on about 497 million unique visitors (unique over what time period
is not specified) over the month of December. Sites involved are mainly
general-interest and not big commercial ones.

All of which suggests to me that XML is best kept server side in open
environments for a good while yet.

Of course, 1% is enough people to earn you a gold record.
