Home Forums Other Making up tags – WHY is it wrong? Re: Making up tags – WHY is it wrong?


“But please, code with standards in mind.”

And that means? I make websites, not browsers, I don’t invent tags for others to use, either. So — lol? I’m not setting standards for anybody, I make my own website.. Microsoft, heh. If my website breaks, because “d” and “s” suddenly get a meaning (very likely, yes?), that’s my loss. And yes, I knew about XML, but my point is, it never mattered. It mattered for strict validation, not ever for rendering. Well, in some cases, but people simply blindly did it. So if “abide by the standard” is just another wording for “they might invent a tag with that name some day”, then read the first post. I’d take that risk :P
