We’re working on improving our documentation for web developers on MSDN. Here are a few changes we’ve made over the last month or so.
- A Simplified Table of Contents
This can be seen in the panel on the left under Web Development. The previous table of contents was a bit confused and often made it a struggle to find topics that were relevant.
- Removal of “new” tags
As a great many people have pointed out Internet Explorer 6 is no longer “new”. We’ve removed the highlights on reference pages for functionality that was new in 2001.
We’ve made many corrections to the reference documentation. Tom Gilder in the comments of this blog http://blogs.msdn.com/dmassy/archive/2004/07/02/172106.aspx#172124 pointed out an error in listing functionality as being part of DOM level 1 when it was not. Thanks for the feedback Tom, and sorry it took us a little time to get this updated.
We’re planning continued improvements and updates to our developer documentation as part of our renewed focus on Internet Explorer. With such a comprehensive set of documentation we appreciate all the feedback we get as it is often difficult to see issues with a fresh eye. If you spot errors or have topics you’d like to see covered please let us know here on the blog or through the feedback mechanisms on MSDN. We plan to continue to address issues and provide great documentation as we move Internet Explorer forward.
