Internet & Networking There's a bit of ruckus going on at the moment in the world of HTML5. A number of people are claiming that Adobe has blocked the latest publication of the HTML5 standard. However, after diving into the actual mailing list threads, it becomes obvious quite quickly that it's nothing but a misunderstanding. Update: Masinter replies: "No part of HTML5 is, or was ever, 'blocked' in the W3C HTML Working Group - not HTML5, not Canvas 2D Graphics, not Microdata, not Video - not by me, not by Adobe."

I knew this sounded too much familiar... Come on, this is not even on-topic.


It is on topic given that the person I was responding to was an unapologetic apologist for Adobe, Flash and all that is unholy with proprietary technologies. Why write a whole new post when I've already beaten my chest so many times on the matter?
