RE: more namespace abuse


I like this helpful sample on how to properly declare namespaces in IE:

    <HTML XMLNS:MyNS1 XMLNS:MyNS2="www.microsoft.com">

It's so very sad to see that there are people there at Microsoft who
understand very well the issues, who know very well the right thing to do,
who even helped shape the relevant standards. And yet, when it comes to
actual shipping products, we see such utter, complete contempt from
Microsoft for these standards it helped define.

This is really sad.
