Internet Explorer 5 Falls Short on Standards Support, Web Developers Forced to Continue Workarounds

“While Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 5.0 makes marked
improvements over version 4.0, it still falls short — sometimes
significantly — of fully supporting key Web standards, the Web
Standards Project said today.”

“Web developers will be forced to continue extensive — and
expensive — workarounds and debugging to deal with Internet
Explorer’s failure to fully implement standards created by the
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).”

“The patchwork support for these standards among browsers is
wasting millions of dollars spent on Web development each year and
threatens to further fragment the Web, especially as browsers move
beyond the desktop to televisions and PDAs.”
