Netscape zal in Communicator 5.0 geen ondersteuning bieden voor z'n eigen DOM (whatever dat allemaal mag zijn) Voordat ik onzin uit ga kraaien kun je beter checken wat News.com in dit nieuwsbericht te vertellen heeft:
In an attempt to speed its next-generation browser to market, AOL is dropping support for its proprietary version of an important new browser technology.
America Online's Netscape Communications division has long promised support for the standardized Document Object Model (DOM) in its upcoming version 5.0 of the Communicator browser. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommended its version of the DOM last year.
Netscape now says that in the process of implementing support for the W3C DOM, Level 1, it will not make Communicator 5.0 backward-compatible with some of its own proprietary DOM technology.
Version 5.0's "contract is to fully support DOM1/CSS1/HTML 4.0," wrote Communicator senior product manager Eric Krock in a post to the "netscape.public.mozilla.layout" newsgroup last week. "We unfortunately lack the time and resources to do that *and* support either of the two legacy proprietary DOMs (IE4 and Nav4), so we're going to focus on doing the W3C standards right, providing a robust, unchanging, standard platform going forward."
Dus dit gaat in de praktijk betekenen dat Netscape <layer>'s niet meer gaan werken in Communicator5?
