RE: Why Doesn't IE5 use the DTD to Validate?
Daniel, My NG-HTML articles pre-date the Voyager/XHTML effort. Alan Richmond, the original mastermind behind Web Developer's Virtual Library (WDVL) and its long-time author, plans to do an in-depth article on XHTML in mid May. Interested parties should watch the WDVL home page, http://www.WDVL.com/. The XML section of WDVL lists XHTML in the Specifications page and in the News page (which will be updated shortly). http://wdvl.Internet.com/Authoring/Languages/XML/Specifications.html http://wdvl.Internet.com/Authoring/Languages/XML/News.html I'll pass your good wishes on to Alan and Lucy. Good luck at CNET; I visit frequently. -Ken Sall, WDVL > -----Original Message----- > From: Daniel Austin [mailto:daniela@xxxxxxxx] > Sent: Wednesday, March 31, 1999 2:49 PM > To: 'xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' > Subject: RE: Why Doesn't IE5 use the DTD to Validate? > > > Hi Ken, > > It's a bug, they know about it.
