Yeah, as the "bay window" the browser still is of utmost importance. I
personally am impressed by the more pragmatic attitude that some browser
vendors seem to be taking now , going with whatever works best for
the user and can get consensus among browser vendors, rather than doing
user-hostile things in the name of purity to some random irrelevant
spec. In fact, the Hyatt discussion has morphed in a sense into a
discussion about namespaces in HTML , and the remarkable thing is
that *none* of these people are suggesting the facist route of "force
the whole world to use XHTML and only then will it work!". That's a
good sign, IMO.
