i read the article.  certainly didn't sound promising, but i think that 
some of the comments were quite germane about having site developers 
recode their pages to standards.  i guess putting it in that perspective 
makes more sense.  if browsers and software developers developed to 
standards then "old" pages would have to be recoded to standards and the 
rest of us could go forth.  pie-in-the-sky?  maybe, but something is 
going to have to give.

one of the authors mentioned that we, the coders, serve ms -- i thought 
it was the other way around.  is the industry going to continue to 
accept product development that supports inferior standards?  i hope not.
