Re:  Re: [ubl-dev] Technology heavy-weights consider thefuture
Even when you conform it doesn't work. I test everything on Firefox and 
IE 6 for javascript and css errors. Once the errors are gone, one then 
has to deal with the imponderable of the layout engines ...

And while I'm on it, my nuisance of the week is the the css "float" 
option. We all know that we should use divs instead of tables for layout 
control (sic) which is fine, except that divs with a style "float:right" 
have to be written in reverse order (ie the right hand one first, the 
one just to the left of it etc and finally the stuff that's floating 
around them ... that is not intuitive, not even sure it's *WELL* documented)

wrong list i know, but the subject is standards writing, interpretation, 
and conformance
