Internet Explorer It would appear that Microsoft will finally take standards compliance in the browser world seriously, after dragging its feet for years. Back in November 2009, the Redmond giant already revealed that Internet Explorer 9 would come with CSS3 and HTML5 support, and now the cup runneth over, as Microsoft has requested to join the W3C's SVG Working Group.

So no way to convert from big-endian to little-endian exists? Netscape back in the day had a plugin that would run ActiveX controls, thats COM.

Now I don't think running COM objects is a good idea, I'm just saying it could be done.

Oh yes it can be done but my point is, why would you bother when there are better things out there that don't make you have to think which endian you are, or what memory model you use.
