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.

HTML 5 and CSS 3.0 will deliver what I been wanting to do for a long time and will let me create cleaner markup and a better separation between the semantic elements and its styling.

I only wish it came sooner.

Yea but thanks to XP/IE8 holdouts it makes sense for commercial sites to stick with HTML 4. We're just now getting to the point where mainstream websites can drop IE6 support.

HTML5 is going to be mostly a toy technology for the next few years.
