I would have guessed this one would have hit the list by now, but I was
wrong :) Here is the message I posted to one of the CF lists...


Well it looks all like the speculation has been true. This is the first
substantial rumor we've seen. I also have another reason to believe it's
I've been following the Mozilla development pretty closely, and have
just started to notice a new keyword on some bugs called "AOLTW". As a
matter of fact in reading some of the bugs listed by following the below
link, you will see that there is a specific AOLTW branch even.
Watch that wrap...
Why else would the mothership be interested in a Mozilla bug unless they
specifically ran into it while developing something based on Mozilla?

I think the most interesting point made in the article is that all those
companies that use AOL for internet access that have a thrown together
FrontPage web site are going to start seeing their web sites looking
real ugly in a standard conforming browser, so they are going to need
them fixed. That's good for us!
