HTML is dead

Apple could have put forward their proposals, discussed them, got concensus, and everyone would have thought they were just planning these features for the Web Application space. [via Hixie's Natural Log]

Don't touch HTML, or if you want to, tell some one about what you want to do and lie about why. Funny old world, you can see why MS is not interested [anymore].

The best from Ian is this:

For specific features like these, it doesn't take long to get consensus; they are small features whose basic design can be agreed reasonably quickly.

All depends on your definition of 'reasonable' I suppose and given how long the WHAT group have been discussing things and it is not, to my understanding, a consensual environment (you get to rant, Ian gets to decide) I don't really see how it helps.

Still, the bottom line is we should not claim that Zeepe displays HTML because while it can, it can sometimes also display something else - though they are not at all sure what that something else is. .... <sigh>

Be Fair to the WHAT-WG, it's pretty much I get to Rant, a few people respond and Ian gets to decide, very few other people bother ranting at all. Or indeed do anything much at all.
