Perspective: Microsoft's amusing standards stance

,----[ Quote ]
| One fun thing to do in Web browsers is to check how well documents
| conform to standards. For example, you can pass the URL of
| Microsoft's letter to W3C's validator. Doing so reveals that
| the letter is not written according to the HTML specification.
| The validator finds 33 errors in the most lenient mode. (One of
| the errors is the use of the "layer" element. (The "layer" element?!)
| Microsoft--please--if you think standards are so important,
| why not start using them?

| It's like you have a used car and then what are you going to do with it?
| Are you going to get rid of it and get a new one? Or are you going to give
| it a paint job? I think (what) Microsoft has done here is given it a
| paint job.
