From an almost infinate amount of time lurking in #html I have learned serveral things, the most important thing for this node however is this; The W3C dose not mean shit.

For some reason people assume the W3C decides everything about web related tech. This is not true, they merly SUGGEST ideas. No one HAS to follow the ideas.

On an un-related note, for some reason people assume a browser must comply with the W3C standards to be a real browser, this is also false. There is not a single browser on the market that complys with all W3C standards, not even Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The W3C is a fine group of people, but not one to be taken as seriously as they are.
