Hi Tim

Given the current power structure in our industry, all this talk on 
xml-dev about what people might and might not learn pretty well remains 
theorizing in absence of evidence. -Tim

Didier replies:
Yep. I totally agree with that. What is used on customers desktop is
mainly decided by Redmond's people. What is used on the client side is
what they decide. 

By the way, I just noticed that IE6 SP 1 supports XHTML 1.0. I just
tested that with the following code and it displayed correctly. Notice
that there is no more needs to include a space in the <br/> element.

This is working only if the document MIME type is text/html (or with
.htm/html file extension). If the MIME type is set to text/xml (or .xml
file extension) then it appears with a hierarchical view of the XML

I performed the same test in Mozilla 1.0 and the document was rendered
with the MIME type set to text/xml. However, Mozilla didn't followed
the</br> instruction to move to the next line and displayed the two text
parts into a single line.

Conclusion, it seems that the XHTML specifications have some importance
and even if the implementation future is decided by Microsoft, it seems
that W3 has still some influence on it. This is why the xlink/XHTML
debate is so important.

Very simple XHTML code snippet used for the test.
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<p>is this working?<br/> all right...
