Internet & Networking Every now and then, you get these news item that make you feel like something's wrong. The item doesn't make sense, shouldn't be possible, and yet it is. Despite Microsoft's newfound commitment to web standards, it's still incredibly unnerving to see things like this - the W3C's first HTML5 compliance test, in which Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 6 outdoes all other browsers.

Yeah, I understand CSS != HTML; but we really lack an all encompassing name for all of the stuff you can render in a browser. The result is people just say HTML when they mean HTML + CSS + javascript + SVG, ect.

Any suggestions for to describe the collection of open standards that ( should) make up the modern web?

I suggest "Corn". Corn being short of Unicorn, and a staple food of millions.
