Trying not to let a month go by…


…between posts.  I’ve been quite busy – it’s been annual performance review time at Microsoft again, and with a sizable team that has taken a lot of my time.  I’ve also been hard at work on planning, and preparations for a couple of talks (the first one, at the Webmaster Jam Session in Dallas, Texas, I just gave on Friday – the second one, at Fundamentos Web 2006, is coming up in a week and a half).  Right now, I’m spending a couple of days with my parents (who live outside Dallas), letting them play with their granddaughter while I playing with a new camera lens (Canon 10-22mm wide-angle on my 20D).


I’ve been gathering some thoughts on compatibility vs. compliance, I’ll be posting those soon.

    If compliance is really important to you the IE-team and MS as a whole, I’d think leaving compatibility to quirksmode and aiming for compliance in standards-compliant mode should be the way to go. That would mean f.i. abandoning document.all in standards-compliant mode solving a lot of problems that now prevent IE from being standards-compliant at all. All MS-propriety extensions should go overboard and be ignored or yield a warning in standards-compliant mode, and IE should implement all of the standards that other browsers already have implemented including DOM level 2, CSS2.1 and some of level 3, WA1.0, XHTML, javascript 1.7 etcetera.

    In terms of technical compliance IE7 is still years behind and is still the least dominor that webdevelopers have to take into account. The fact that IE7 is only a slight improvement over IE6 is after all those years simply unacceptable, even more because of the fact that IE7 brings different problems of the same magnitude as the ones you tried to solve from IE6…
