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.

That article gives the impression that CSS 3 is part of HTML5.

The author could have pointed out CSS 3 limitations without being misleading.

It really seems as if some people are upset by the result. Why am I not surprised that a Wired author put a negative slant on this. The dig at Silverlight was real classy as well.

Wired sucks, they seem stuck in 1999.
