Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

DOM da DOM DOM

In a previous rant, I complained that cookies were broken on this blog. I was angry enough that I was willing to blame the problem on anyone from the W3C to Saddam Hussein to Bebe Rebozo.

Well, turns out that it really was a longstanding bug in Mozilla. I don’t know whether my complaint, had anything to do with it, but within hours, a patch was posted to Bugzilla and after a long back and forth, has finally landed in the CVS tree.

So, tomorrow, you’ll be able to grab yourself a copy of the latest nightly build and enjoy the return of cookies and a working “rememberMe” script to this blog.
