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.

"sometime around 2020 if ever.... It's the exact OPPOSITE of all the progress STRICT gave us - people can't even be bothered to learn how to use TH, CAPTION, LEGEND, FIELDSET, LABEL, ACRONYM - **** sake the only people who even try to use ABBR are the microformat


Let's not forget that IE only recently started to understand ABBR.


HEADER - we have heading tags, we don't need more of them. Silly bull for people who can't bother learning proper heading orders... or


I actually think this is better. What if I have more than 6 levels of headings (probably an unusual thing to happen but anyway) ? HTML as it stands doesn't support this. Deprecating h1-h6 for heading solves the problem, and also solves the misuse of h1-h6 for different size text rather than the real usage of the level of the heading.

Used to make the joke that the same people who made endless nested table rubbish layouts now just make endless nested div layouts - net change zero.


Unfortunately, it isn't a joke unless its the kind that is funny because it is true.

Latex2HTML5 will be far more pleasant than Latex2html with so many more commonly understood elements.
