Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

h264 is a real standard.

MS is as complicit as the W3C. so you are claiming the Web Standards Body is looking to kill HTML5 video.

The problem with Absolutism on a topic is that it does not fit right in the real world.
