what's hot what's not

No really, we just want to render the MS XPerience!

With the launch of its new operating system XP, Microsoft decided to make a couple of changes to the way you can view the web. MSN was redesigned. If you attempted to go there with a browser other than Internet Explorer, and a short list of Netscape browsers, you were presented with a page explaining that you needed to upgrade to IE to see the new site with a browser that supported 'web standards'.

It didn't take very long to disprove Microsoft's assertion that they were compliant to the web standards. Or that this was a very bad idea.

Homesite 5

Homesite 5 is out and is a really good code editor. We have been using Homesite since V 3. Hats off to Macromedia for not attempting to turn it into a dreamweaver clone.

It really is a great code editor.

No RAND for Me

The web works because HTML is an open system.

The majority of what you see on your screen is written in Hyper Text Markup Language. This language has been carefully created to extend the capabilities of what can be communicated from one computer to another. The source for this is the W3C World Wide Web Consortium.

The W3C holds a special position in our little world. We in concert, without clubs, memberships, secret handshakes, or free mouse pads, have decided to agree on the W3C Recommendations as the stone tablets of our universe of the web. We are here as these 'standards' are non-propriatary, open source, and do not 'belong' to anybody. This means that we have a baseline to begin our exploration and experimentation with what we can get to show up in a browser.
