About Tim's article on IE XML implementation
Hi, I read Tim's article in XML.com with interest (Ref: http://www.xml.com/1999/03/ie5/first-x.xml). Several comments are to the point, the critic well conducted and exact except one glitch.... <ArticleExtract> At this point in history, there is only one official, approved, stable, production-quality standard for stylesheets, and it's named Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS for short. CSS 1 has been around since December 1996, and CSS 2 since May 1998. </ArticleExtract> <Reply> The above statement is correct except with its statement beginning "there is only one official, approved, stable, production-quality standard ". this statement is inexact. DSSSL is also an official standard (ISO), approved (internationally), stable (proved it since 2 years), production quality standard (proved it with several implementations). So, let's put the clock with the right time this time and redo the sentence with the correct factual information: At this point in history, there is two official, approved, stable, production-quality standards for style sheets: a) Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS for short. CSS 1 has been around since December 1996, and CSS 2 since May 1998. b) Document Style Semantics and Specification Language or DSSSL has been around since 1996. IE 5.x implements the former, the latter is available as an add-on. So, as Tim did for IE5, I'll put a bug image in front of this article's part :-) </Reply> Regards Didier PH Martin mailto:martind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx http://www.netfolder.com XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
