RE: Alternatives to the W3C
What short memories this industry has. I can remember programming GUI-like interfaces on MS DOS 1.0. I didn't have a mouse, of course, but I had dialog boxes, menus, etc. It wasn't much fun manually drawing boxes 1 pixel at a time, but we did it. The platform at the time was 8088 with 256K RAM. Don't automatically reach for the technology when a little creative thinking and effort can do the job instead. As my old woodwork teacher used to say, "It's a poor workman who blames his tools."
